During a live, televised interview, a hurricane Harvey survivor slammed a CNN reporter for asking questions about her predicament.

“Y’all sitting here, trying to interview people at their worst times,” the woman said. “With me shivering cold, with my kids wet, and you’re still putting the microphone in my face!”

The CNN reporter can be heard repeatedly apologizing to the woman for doing her job, which involves interviewing victims and survivors of disasters and tragedies to report on their stories.

At least 14 have died in Harvey’s aftermath, including a family of six who drowned trying to escape the rising flood waters. Thousands are staying in shelters like the one in Houston from where CNN reporters were working.
