A video clip from a Pakistani news channel has been making the rounds on the social media in which the news anchor became the target of an unprecedented mishap during live TV broadcast. Apparently, a ball of fire came out of nowhere at the Pakistani anchor while he was live on the TV broadcast and asking questions to the panelists.
In the video, the anchor is seen putting a question in front of the panelists. However, while he was speaking on live TV broadcast, a 'crack' sound can be heard in the middle of his sentence (the sound appeared to be of a cracker)
Moments later in the video, while the anchor was speaking to the panelist, a person passed in front the camera and as soon as he passed, a ball of fire came out of nowhere and fell on the news anchor on live broadcast. He then wakes up from his chair to save himself from the ball of fire and moves out of the frame.
However, while all these incidents happened on the live TV broadcast, one of the panelists is seen looking down from the seen as if nothing happened. Another panelist can be heard answering to the question of the news anchor from the background while the anchor was saving himself from the ball of fire out of the frame.

Here's how social media reacted:
This is not the first time when a Pakistani news channel has made headlines. Earlier, an unfortunate botch-up by the Pakistan Television Corporation (PTV) landed Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan at the mercy of trolls on social media after the channel ran ‘Begging’ on its location label instead of ‘Beijing’ while Imran Khan was speaking live from the capital of China.
The gaffe ironically coincided with Pak PM Khan making a pitch for his debt-ridden economy in the capital of the country that is widely viewed as its biggest remaining supporter and the key-holder to Pakistan's economic salvation on account of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).
