No journalist likes seeing their name below the byline, but Alex Savidge probably cares more that he's alive.

The reporter, who works for San Francisco's KTVU, was nearly hit by a car Tuesday while reporting live on a train derailment, according to the outlet.

Savidge was standing in a 7-Eleven parking lot when the car sailed towards him.

Photographer Chip Vaughan yelled at him to get out of the way just in time — but only by chance did Savidge jump in the right direction.

Both the station and Savidge tweeted later that he and Vaughan were okay.

This isn't the first heart-stopping moment caught on live TV.

A journalist in Minnesota was reporting live on a bank robbery in December when the suspect ran through his shot.

CNN anchor Poppy Harlow, who is pregnant, also had a scary moment last year when she passed out while reporting a story.
