Years ago, in 2022, a similar incident happened with Canadian news anchor Farah Nasser. She was reporting news on live television when a fly flew into her mouth, and she ended up swallowing it. She later took to X (then Twitter) to share about this incident. "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),” she wrote as the post’s caption.
