Mexican TV journalist reportedly harassed while covering NY Jets football practice

A female reporter for Mexico's TV Azteca was harassed by football players and a coach during the New York Jets' practice on Saturday, Sept. 11, reported the Associated Press (AP).

Ines Sainz, who was doing a story on quarterback Mark Sanchez, had footballs thrown at her and then was "hooted and hollered" at while she was in the locker room, CNN said.

Sainz tweeted that she was "dying of embarrassment."

The NFL is investigating the incident, according to The New York Times, and the Association for Women in Sports Media said it will schedule an "education and awareness" session with the team, the AP reported.
