German chancellor Angela Merkel doused in beer by clumsy waiter

   Feb 28, 12:57 pm

London, Feb 28 (ANI): Video footage has emerged of a waiter accidentally pouring five glasses of beer down German chancellor Angela Merkel's back.

The amateur video shows how the waiter, known only as Martin D, handed her a glass of beer as she took her seat only for the remaining drinks on his tray to slip down the back of the German leader.

Merkel let out a little shriek as the beer splashed her and the glasses crashed to the floor, however she quickly gathered her composure and impressively shrugged off the incident.

The embarrassed waiter claimed that he had been shoved from behind.

"A colleague should have brought her the beer. But she was so nervous, she asked me to do it for her," the Telegraph quoted him as telling German newspaper Bild.

"I was shoved from behind, and tried to catch the beer s, but it was too late. I shouted '****!' really loudly.

"But she turned around, grinned at me - and even though she was wet, went to the speaker's stage shortly afterwards," he said. (ANI)
