This is the heartbreaking moment a US news anchor informed viewers his he was dying live on air! Dave Benton, a 51-year-old news anchor for WCIA 3 News in Illinois, yesterday told viewers he had been informed by doctors that his brain cancer was back & the tumour was too large to be operated on.

The husband and father of two has decided that a different course of treatment, which will attempt to slow the tumour’s growth, and give him some extra days or weeks to live.

Despite the devastating verdict, Mr Benton remains positive because he is a born again Christian and is in God’s hands. His goal is to make the best of the time he has left.

He said,

The goal here is to have a few more days and to make them the best that they can be in the life that I have. As you know I’m a born again Christian, I believe that I am in God’s hands. I am at peace and I know that he is going to take care of the days ahead and that the goal here is to have the best ones possible.

Mr Benton has anchored the show for nine years.

He didn’t even shed a tear, such a brave man! Truth is we are all living on borrowed time.
