Chilean reporter Bernardita Middleton was recently challenged by her coworkers to jump into the freezing Pacific ocean on live television. She never expected to lose her bikini-top in the water in front of millions of people…
“Then they asked me to jump in the water, so I went for it!” she explained, according to American Overlook.
Sure enough, a wave knocked off Middleton’s bikini in seconds, leaving her topless in front of Chile and the world.
Middleton later explained that the choice to go in the water was a very spur of the moment decision, and that she accidentally hadn’t tightened her bikini enough.
“In truth I wasn’t going to go in the water, the bandeau bikini was a recent present, but I didn’t attach the straps to keep it in place because I had them on my top,” she said afterwards.
