Tim Wilson is used to covering the weird and wacky stories around the country, but this certainly isn't one of them.
The Seven Sharp reporter managed to break his patella in half after coming off a scooter.
He posted a picture of an x-ray of his knee on social media explaining how he had "kneecapped" himself in the incident.
“The end of my career as scooter trash," he wrote.
“Poor Tim! Hope it heals fast so you can continue doing extra fun and quirky stories! Bless you,” said Anika Moa.
“Omg poor Tim!!!!” said Hilary Barry.
And Breakfast host Jack Tame replied to say: “Sheesh!! T-Bone did his knee bone?! Get well bro."
A TVNZ representative confirmed to Spy that Wilson had fractured his knee. They didn't know how long he would be off air.
