Sunrise newsreader Natalie Barr was brought to tears this morning when she learned about the death of Sydney hostage victim Katrina Dawson.
Barr read the news on Australia’s top-rated morning TV programme and revealed Ms Dawson's identity live on air.
"Katrina Dawson was the sister of a prominent barrister Sandy Dawson who has done some work for Channel Seven," she said.
"I know (him) and have friends who know, she was a mother of three children. I'm just finding this out this morning."
