This is the bizarre moment a news anchor swallowed a fly live – but continued presenting despite “feeling it floating deep in her throat”.

Farah Nasser, who is a Global National presenter in Canada, shared footage of the ordeal on Twitter.

In the footage, she begins to introduce a story about the floods in Pakistan.

But her facial expression changes as she swallows and winces, struggling to swallow a fly.

She said of the now viral clip, which has racked up over 100,000 views: “Share because we all need a laugh these days. Turns out it’s not just @fordnation, I swallowed a fly live today. (Really a first world problem considering the history I present).

Speaking to CNN about the moment later, she admitted she could feel the bug “fly” down her throat and said it was stuck.

Despite the situation, she continued to present the segment she was introducing.

In a separate interview on

explained in more detail how the situation unfolded.

Before she started presenting, she had seen the fly in the studio but only worried that it was covering the camera lens.

However, the fly was suddenly in her throat, and she had to quickly switch to the reporter.

She said of the clip that went viral that she was happy to make people laugh, even if it was at her expense.

It comes after Ontario Premier Doug Ford, who she mentioned in her tweet, last month swallowed a live bee.
