Fox News Channel has been sued for accidentally airing a man's suicide while broadcasting a low-speed car chase in Arizona last fall, The Hollywood Reporter reports.

Angela Rodriguez, the mother of the deceased JoDon Romero's three sons, aged 9, 13, and 15, filed a complaint stating that their children suffered extreme emotional distress after seeing the video of their father's death online. Rodriguez named News Corp., Fox Entertainment and Fox News Network as plaintiffs, and seeks unspecified damages "to the extent permitted by law."

On Sept. 28, 2012, the network followed a carjacker as he attempted to evade police. After Romero exited the car, the cameras followed as he ran erratically down a dirt road before pulling a gun from his pocket and shooting himself in the head. As soon as Romero reached for the gun, anchor Shepard Smith began crying for the control room to cut away, repeatedly insisting, "Get off, get off, get off."
