Televised weather reports captured the moment when a skier had a “Mrs Bean” moment. She was seen holding onto her life until she fell down some stairs in Pennsylvania’s ski resort.
On Thursday, Abbey Way, a reporter at Seven Springs Mountain Resort was providing a weather update when she saw a woman behind her who was struggling to climb the stairs.
The female, later referred to as “Mrs Bean”, was seen in the background, holding onto the railings and then falling completely down the stairs.
Way was apparently unaware that she was being followed behind her and was completely taken by surprise when Way saw it. She has since become a celebrity on social media.
Since then, Alex Moser, a ski resort spokesperson has revealed that the stumble was one of several pre-choreographed stunts being used in reports over the past month at the resort and that Way “doesn’t often even know what’s happening behind her.”
A video captures the moment when a female skier is seen falling and holding onto the railing while climbing a set of stairs covered in snow at Seven Springs Mountain Resort, Pennsylvania.
The woman was unable to climb the steps because of her slip. Reporter Abbey Way was still giving a weather update televised on the air.
The woman lost control of her ski poles and was unable to control herself. She managed to get up again for the second attempt at the staircase.
It started as any other Thursday, with Way being captured at the resort to give an update about the snowy conditions.
Unidentified female in ski clothes and boots, can be seen holding on to the railing while she climbs down the stairs.
After falling on the stairs, she loses control and drops her ski poles.
Way continues the story, seemingly unaware of what is happening behind her.
The woman then gets up to grab onto the railing and holds on.
She manages to descend the stairs without further falls or spills. However, she does make one last mistake before heading down to the slopes.
As Way reports, she slowly moves away.

Without any slips or falls, she manages to make it safely down the stairs
But, after reaching the ground she made one last stumble before heading out on the slopes.
The video was released on September 1, and has received more than one million views. It has also attracted significant attention from social media, with celebrities like Rex Chapman, an ex-Star of the NBA.
Users also enjoyed the comedy as they observed the slapstick timing of the female skier during an apparently ‘professionally prepared’ weather report.

@philzer18tweeted, “She should probably just always have that helmet.”
“She was taking her skis to her tiny car, which is parked right outside of the shot,” @ChicagoMSTie tweets.
Rex Chapman, a former NBA basketball player, retweeted Thursday’s video via his Twitter account
After the viral video was shared on social media, users of this platform have been sharing the jokes.
‘We’ve been trying to do something a little different this year with something humorous going on in the background … trying to make it a little more interesting,’ Moser told TribLive. “Abbey does not always know what is going on behind the scenes.”
A Grinch confronts an unsuspecting skier in another weather update. This was reported by the network during Christmas Eve.
The skier ran away from a Santa Claus costume-clad man who was later seen attacking him.
The Grinch could then be seen lying there during the rest of the report.
