This is so sad.
Sunrise anchor Natalie Barr broke down on air while reporting on the hostage siege in Sydney after discovering she knew one of the two victims. The gunman was also killed. Natalie broke down while relaying the identities of those who lost their lives:
"Katrina Dawson was the sister of a prominent barrister [lawyer] Sandy Dawson who has done some work for Channel Seven. I know (him) and have friends who know, she was a mother of three children. I'm just finding this out this morning."
Barr remained shaken for the rest of the report.
The two victims were lauded as heroes.
