New York Giants punter Steve Weatherford tackled WNBC sportscaster Bruce Beck during an appearance at a Long Island day camp on Tuesday.

Weatherford was the special guest of Coleman Country Day Camp in Merrick, Long Island and put on a mini punting clinic where he invited some kids to catch his punts. The last person called on was Beck, who caught Weatherford's punt but was not expecting the Giants punter to chase him down. 

Beck tried to get away but Weatherford caused him to fumble as he took him down. In the end, however, Beck was happy just to still be alive. Fortunately no one was hurt and Weatherford does not have a lawsuit on his hands.
