[UPDATED:] OC Fair Ice Sculpture Mishap: Real or Staged?

Someone at the Huffington Post thinks KOCE/Channel 50's Real Orange may be joshing us.
Something that seems to be tragic happens during an on-camera interview with an Orange County Fair ice sculptor.
Here's what the unnamed Huffingtonian wrote:
Found via Vulture comes this suspicious video from the OC Fair of a bumbling reporter effectively smashing eight hours of ice sculptor Roland Hernandez's life, leaving them to melt on the turkey-bone littered fairplex asphalt. Vulture astutely points out "The speed at which [the reporter] puts the mike back into the man's face, however, suggests premeditation". Do you think the video is real or a hoax?
I'd lean toward real only because Real Orange has never before displayed a sense of humor.
