Sana Jose (Web Desk): President of Costa Rica Luis Guillermo Solís Rivera had an unusual guest hindering his speech a wasp! and the hindrance ended tragically after the president swallowed it live.

Yes, during a live press briefing a wasp flew at the president and he accidentally swallowed the insect. Smiling all for the camera, he kept answering and then took a sip of water to gulp it down. Ewww!

Solís exclaimed, before bursting out laughing along with media personnel, “I ate it, I ate the wasp!”. “You don’t see that every day… they’re going to send it to international media, pure protein!” the president laughed as he was handed a bottle of water by a member of his team.

Well, though it happened in a fraction of a second, people and cameramen did not miss the wasp going down the president’s throat.

BBC originally released the video.
