A CNN reporter was knocked to the ground during a recent protest in Charlotte, North Carolina. 

The reporter was on LIVE television when a protester walked by him and gave him a body check, much like you'd see in hockey. The reporter immediately fell to the ground, but was not injured.

A day later, the reporter said that the man who knocked him to the ground helped him up and even hugged him.

Protesters have taken to the streets in Charlotte after a black man was shot by police in an unfortunate incident.
