(Newser) – Anderson Cooper almost became a news story himself while reporting live from Gaza City last night as Israeli airstrikes continued, Mediaite reports. While the CNN anchor was explaining the dire situation in local hospitals, he had to duck as a large blast happened nearby. "That was a rather large explosion," he said seconds later. "That was probably the largest explosion that we’ve heard just in the past, really in the past hour," he added. "There have been a number of explosions in the last hour or two."
