(Newser) – It wasn't exactly a Kodak moment. An ESPN sky camera came crashing down to nearly cream a college football player during the weekend Insight Bowl. Iowa Hawkeyes receiver Martin McNutt Jr. dodged the heavy video camera but briefly became entangled in the rig's guide wire. He wasn't hurt, reports ABC News. “First, I looked: What is it that fell from the sky?” McNutt said after Iowa’s 31-14 loss to Oklahoma. “The next thing I know, the camera scratched me. It was pulling me, and I knew I didn’t want to keep going with it." He joked: “I felt like somebody was trying to kill me on Oklahoma’s side," then added seriously: "It was lucky it didn't hit me."
