The tooth comes out.
Ukrainian news anchor Marichka Padalko didn’t let a dental mishap interrupt a recent broadcast, where she calmly caught a tooth that came out while she was on air.
The veteran anchorwoman posted video of the incident on her Instagram page after a clip started making the rounds online
Padalko said her own network declined to post the episode on its YouTube channel, but astute viewers shared the moment on social media, according to NBC’s “Today” show.
“We underestimated the attention of our viewers,” she conceded.
Padalko said that tooth was first knocked out a decade ago while she was playing with her daughter.
The news veteran said her colleagues praised her for her poise. She called the episode the “most curious experience in 20 years as a presenter.”
