Reporter Whose Kids Crashed BBC News: 'Comedy of Errors'

(The Wall Street Journal)

The reporter whose kids crashed his BBC interview last week said he forgot to lock the door and called the now-viral moment a "comedy of errors," The Wall Street Journal reported.

Robert Kelly, a professor of political science at Pusan National University in South Korea and an expert on East Asian affairs, was on a Skype call with the BBC talking about the impeachment of South Korea's president when his 4-year-old daughter walked into his home office and strolled toward her dad. Soon after, Kelly's 8-month-old son followed behind in his walker. 

"Then I knew it was over," Kelly told the paper.

Mom Kim Jung-A did not know the kids were in the room until she saw them on the TV screen in the couple's living room. She was recording Kelly's appearance on her phone and apparently, the interview had been on a delay.

"He usually locks the door," Kim told the Journal. "Most of the time they come back to me after they find the locked door. But they didn’t. And then I saw the door was open. It was chaos for me."

The video had been viewed over 84 million times on the BBC's Facebook page.

Story continues after this video.

"I mean it was terribly cute," said Kelly, who was initially embarrassed about the ordeal. "I saw the video like everybody else. My wife did a great job cleaning up a really unanticipated situation as best she possibly could... It was funny. If you watch the tape, I was sort of struggling to keep my own laughs down. They're little kids, and that's how things are."
