Nick McCallum rubbishes claims he wasn’t wearing a seatbelt in a news story


Nick McCallum caused a stir on Monday evening when a Channel 7 news story appeared to show him in a car without a seatbelt. 

‘Buckle Up’ told the Rumour File Nick wasn’t wearing a seatbelt in a truck while reporting on a hike in CityLink tolls.

But the 3AW presenter says that’s just wrong.

He tweeted a photo to remove all doubt.

‘It clearly shows there is a seatbelt around my shoulder,’ Nick told 3AW Breakfast.

This prompted Ross and John to consider the most examined photos of all time.

Some of the nominations include:

  • The moon landing
  • The scene of the JFK assassination
  • The Loch Ness Monster
  • The cover of the Beatles’ album Abbey Road

For the record, you can see the seatbelt in the photo, cutting across the side-view mirror and running down Nick’s left shoulder.
