Huang Ching was presenting a live news programme, when a rogue mosquito flew into her mouth.
The creature managed to lodge itself in Ching's windpipe, causing her to choke - though in an amazing display of professionalism Ching attempted to continue her broadcast.
The China Television Co had to rush out a four-minute advert while a replacement presenter was drafted in to carry on the news.
'I never expected a mosquito to have such a great power. It really gave me a bad day,' Ching told the China Times. Ching was rushed to hospital following the incident, and spent a day under observation to recover.
