Canadian News Anchor CHOKES On Fly During Live Broadcast on Pakistan Floods, Forced To Swallow It On Live TV! Internet Cracks Up-WATCH
News anchors can accidentally produce some of the most epic and hilarious moments. Despite their glamorous and professional looks they have to be on their toes to cover any breaking news, get ready for their show and prepare to speak in front of millions of people on live television. Apart from that they also have to brave all the unforeseen development. 

In an attempt to cover a story, sometimes, anchors fumble, forget that they’re live, or even faint. Something out of the ordinary happened with this news anchor and it is cracking up social media users.

Farah Nasser, a journalist and news anchor for Canadian news channel Global News was caught on air when a bug flew into her mouth while reporting about torrential rains breaking havoc in Pakistan. 


“Pakistan has never seen an unbroken cycle of monsoons quite like this. Eight weeks of non-stop torrential rain. A national emergency has been invoked…,” Nasser tries saying in her news report. 

However, a bug accidentally flies into her mouth while she struggles to complete her sentence. But, she quickly swallows it and finishes her sentence, while continuing to report the news. 

She tweeted the video saying, “Sharing because we all need a laugh these days. Turns out it’s not just @fordnation, I swallowed a fly on air today. (Very much a first-world problem given the story I’m introducing).”


Many found it hilarious and the video has been going viral now with over 99k views and 1,600 likes. While many took a hearty laugh, some even praised the news anchor for handling the situation professionally. 

Speaking about the incident to ET Canada, the journalist said, “I’m so glad it gave people a laugh! We could all use one these days. Viewers and colleagues have been kind with their praise but I’m sure they would have done the same. The news must go on. As for the fly, I hope it lived a good life.”
