The video says it all:

That little stunt cost her her job:

A Hungarian camerawoman has been fired after she tripped refugees who were fleeing from police, her employer announced Tuesday.

The incident, which was captured on video by a German correspondent Stephan Richter, occurred as dozens of refugees attempted to flee an overcrowded camp near the Hungarian-Serbian border, the WashingtonPost reports. Around the 15-second mark, the camerawoman, who was working for Hungarian broadcaster N1TV, appears to trip a man holding a child as she films the scene.

“Today, a N1TV colleague behaved unacceptably at the Roeszke reception center. The cameraman’s employment was terminated with immediate effect,” the TV station said in a statement, which did not identify the employee by name.
