Serbian Energy Minister Aleksandar Antic was hit in the head by a large chunk of ice during a TV interview on December 4.
The minister was lucky to wear a life saving helmet. The helmet fell from Aleksandar Antic’s head and appeared to crack while he addressed reporters. Nearby, rescue teams were trying to restore electricity that has been out in the area for several days.
The minister said: “As you could have seen now, this is the best possible way to illustrate under which conditions people are working here.”
Aleksandar Antic was touring an eastern area hit by a cold snap last week, where thousands of people were left without electricity for several days.
