The incident came after Aaron Creswell’s perfectly executed free-kick put the Hammer ahead in the 32nd minute against their opponents, who were threatened with relegation.
As the cameraman moved along the sideline to film the West Ham players celebrating the goal, he seemed to collide with the lineman.
This caused him to fall dramatically to the ground, with an alternate perspective, showing how he stumbled before falling on a turf amid the festivities.
Viewers could even see the fall from the cameraman’s point of view when footage from his camera was broadcast before being cut at a different angle as soon as he hit the deck.
Fans hurried to go to social networks to respond to the accident with the operator, one tweet: “The operator is rolling in the background.”
Another joked: “Hey, @SkyFootball this operator made a sniper ??”
Will West Ham United finish in the top four this season? Let us know in the comments section below.
A third viewer added: “Please tell me that there is a video in which the operator Sky stumbles upon the lineman when” West Ham “scored a goal.”
Another fan also wrote on Twitter: “Dangerous work of operators in West Ham!”
David Moyes ’team was able to hold the lead until the break, but was canceled shortly after the break when Mason Holgate hit a volley that pulled Everton to the level.
Jarod Bowen then regained the home side’s advantage just five minutes before Everton’s afternoon became even harder when Michael Keane was sent off in the 65th minute.
West Ham’s win lifts them to fifth place in the table ahead of Tottenham’s meeting with Newcastle United later on Sunday.
They also reduced the gap to fourth place for Arsenal, which plays Crystal Palace on Monday night, by just three points, with the three sides occupying the fifth, sixth and seventh now equal 51 points.
