On Saturday, KRCR reporter Meaghan Mackey was live-streaming from the scene of a mass drug overdose in Chico that left one person dead and sent at least 12 people to the hospital. While on air, she was disrupted by voices off-camera. A woman can be overheard saying, “This is disrespectful, do you understand that?” before another woman begins yelling, “Get the f— out of here.”

The screaming goes on for a few minutes and then suddenly the camera falls to the ground and the video ends. KRCR removed the video from its Facebook page, which was re-posted on Facebook and by some media outlets. 

On Sunday, Mackey spoke out and shared exactly what happened that night.

“As many of you know, I was attacked and assaulted at the scene of a mass overdose in Chico, California last night,” she wrote. “I was doing my job, reporting the facts on a major incident during a Facebook live for my news station @KCRC7.”

Mackey went on to thank law enforcement along with her colleagues family for their love and support.

“I am still shaken up, but am doing okay,” she wrote. “I stand with all journalists working in defense of the truth.” She added,

“I will not live in fear of doing my job,” she continued. “I value the freedom of the press & will continue to report on the truth and inform the public, even during times of tragedy.”
