But he was unaware of the fact that there was another step below his feet which made him fall into the deeper water.

Stayt stated, "Mike is trying to continue with the interview but we can hardly hear him as a few seconds ago Mike enjoyed the little collapse in the water, his sound pack is all wet and he has absolutely no clue that we cannot hear him now. Good Bye, Mike, it wasn’t a dull show at all.”
