Caught on Video: Costa Rican president swallows wasp during interview

PASO REAL, Costa Rica (WSYX/WTTE) -- The president of Costa Rica went through an unusual situation while speaking to reporters on Thursday as a wasp went into his mouth.

Luis Guillermo Solís stopped talking, swallowed it and told everyone "I ate it. I ate the wasp," as seen on video captured by regional news agency PZ Actual.

As he laughed about it, the president said the video should be sent to CNN.

After an aide offered President Solis water, he kept talking to the media about the opening of an asphalt plant that officially opened in the south of the country.
