CBS commentator Gary Danielson is under fire after he was heard chuckling as cameras showed an unconscious photographer being put on a stretcher during Saturday's game between Georgia and Auburn at Jordan-Hare Stadium.

The photographer, Chamberlain Smith, was injured when UGA running back Brian Herrien ran into her during the second quarter of the Bulldogs' 21-14 win over the Tigers.

Danielson found the moment humorous — even after watching the replay of the scary collision.

As the broadcast continued, he appeared to ask if Smith was paying attention to the game.
