A Channel 7 presenter broke down in tears live on air as she realised she knew one of the victims of the café siege in Sydney.
Natalie Barr, who presents the channel's Sunrise programme, found out that mother-of-three Katrina Dawson - the sister of one of her friends - was among those killed in the 16-hour attack.
Reports claim Ms Dawson, aged 38, was trying to protect her pregnant friend from gunfire when she was shot and killed.
Miss Barr was co-hosting from the scene with fellow presenter David Koch when she realised who the victim was, and had to hand over to her colleague while she composed herself.
