This is shocking moment a boy eats two flies that land near his mouth during a live TV interview in Australia.
The rural farming family of four appeared live on TV show The Project, to discuss how weather extremes – after recent heavy rainfall – have impacted them.
In the clip, shared to Reddit, the boy’s mother talks about the ‘tough times’ the family have faced as his sister and father look into the camera.

A fly buzzes around the boy’s mouth.
But he barely flinches and keeps proudly beaming at the camera, not wanting to let a pesky insect impede his moment onscreen.
As the fly lands on his face and walks towards his mouth, the boy opens wide and pokes his tongue out to his left, flattening the fly beneath it.
