This is the horrendous moment a TV reporter was vomited on by a 'drunk' beachgoer celebrating American Independence Day.

Hundreds of people flocked to Hermosa Beach in Los Angeles, US, yesterday to mark the Fourth of July in a rather unique way.

Revellers ran a mile along the beachfront and paddled a mile in the ocean before necking a six-pack of beer.

Reporter Wendy Burch may wish she had never been sent down to cover the event.

Speaking from the packed beach, she says: "I once had dream like this that I was in the middle of mosh pit with a lot of people who were drinking."

With perfect comic timing, she beckons a burly, bearded man over by saying to the camera "this is getting ugly".

Moments later a wave of vomit appears to fly across Wendy and her interviewee on the Californian beach.

The camera quickly cuts back to the KTLA studio where both presenters look utterly shocked by what they had just seen.

Presenter Frank Buckley jokes: "Wendy get out of there now before you get covered in something other than beer."

Both KTLA workers in the studio then ponder out aloud if Wendy was covered in beer or vomit.

In an article for the Huffington Post, Wendy explained that the man had a bullseye drawn on his back, with the words 'puke here' written in magic marker.

"And wouldn't you know it? Someone took him up on the offer right during the middle of my live report, much to the chagrin, of me, our anchors and anyone in Southern California who may have been eating breakfast at that very moment," she wrote.
