(Scroll down for video) A television studio became infested with mosquitoes after a female host released them into the air, according to video uploaded to the internet.
The incident occurred during the live show “BBC Breakfast” where the presenter accidentally released a box of mosquitoes live on air.
Louise Minchin had a segment on insect bites during the presentation yesterday, when she offered to put her hand inside the case of insects.
However, when she tried to put her hand inside she accidentally ripped the front of the box, releasing the insects into the studio.
The guest on the show, Dr. James Logan of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, quickly moved the box and assured everyone that there was no danger, while Minchin tried to control her laughter for the rest of the segment.
She said: “I and mosquitoes have a really bad relationship. In fact, I’ve hit myself trying to kill a mosquito.”
The video has now accumulated over 162,000 views since it was posted on YouTube yesterday.
