We’ve all had an embarrassing moment happen in our lives at some time or another. For one Ukrainian news anchor, her embarrassing moment happened while reporting a story on air in the studio.

While reading the news, Marichka Padalko had her front tooth fall out while the camera was focused in on her face. With perfect poise, she gently picked the tooth out of her mouth and kept going.

The mother of three seemed to find it humorous and posted the clip on her Instagram with the caption:

“Yes, I really lost part of my front tooth today during the live broadcast of TSN at 9:00. This is probably my most curious experience in twenty years as a presenter. Live broadcasting is wonderful because it is always unpredictable.”

Padalko said the tooth got knocked out when her daughter, who was a toddler at the time, dropped a metal alarm clock on her face while the two of them were playing.

Two days later, she posted again thanking everyone who reached out to see if she was okay after the embarrassing incident.

“Dear all, I am overwhelmed with the words of support that I’ve been getting over the past few days from all over the world over the “tooth” incident. I am very touched by your wonderful words and your kindness. I wish you all meet the same kind of understanding and appreciation, should you find yourself in uncomfortable situation.”
