News Presenter Keeps Her Cool As Her Tooth Falls Out Live On-Air
Marichka Padalko was covering the coronavirus crisis when the nightmare happened, but she handled the whole thing like a true professional, barely even pausing the broadcast.
The news reader took it in her stride. When her tooth begins to come loose, and even when it falls free, she casually lifts her hand up to her mouth and catches it without even interrupting her report.
Although the whole thing was as discreet as it could possibly be, beauty blogger Ekulka clocked the incident and posted about it on social media.
The TSN presenter, 44, replied to her: "Yes, I really lost part of my front tooth today during the live TSN broadcast at 9am.
"This is probably my most curious experience in 20 years as a presenter."

In an Instagram post later on, she explained that she first damaged the tooth more than a decade ago.
She told that her daughter had picked up an alarm clock from her bedroom when she was a baby and had waved it around 'like a toy'. The young child accidentally hurt her mum's tooth, but it came back to bite her when she happened to be live on air.
