Found August 25, 2012 on Holdout Sports:
In a Europa League soccer match Thursday night, Liverpool FC winger Raheem Sterling accidentally took out a cameraman during the first half of their 1-0 win over Hearts.


Sterling was pushed out of bounds by Hearts defender Callum Paterson as they chased a ball into the corner of the field, where the photographer happened to be seated on a portable stool. Sterling went into a slide to avoid a full speed collision with the cameraman, but couldn't stop himself from sliding into the stool and knocking him over.

Credit goes to Sterling for his effort to avoid injuring the cameraman, and also apologizing immediately as he slid into the stool. The cameraman, and his camera, appeared to be fine afterwards.

One of the broadcasters summed it up best when he said the cameraman "certainly got his close-up here."
