CNN anchor Poppy Harlow, who is pregnant, fainted while broadcasting live on the air on Monday.
She recovered and is reportedly fine.
The incident occurred when Harlow was in the middle of reporting “bad news for the Obama administration” in the form of a network poll showing 74 percent of those surveyed were not happy with the fight against terrorism.
A graphic was on the screen, so the anchor was not visible when she passed out, but viewers could hear Harlow slur her words and start breathing heavily before falling silent.
Although down, Harlow was not out, as she addressed the incident later on in the broadcast.
“I got a little hot and I passed out for a moment. I am fine,” the pregnant anchor said before addressing concerns on Twitter, too.
Thank you all for your concern and messages! I am ok! Passed out briefly and am with the doctor now. So thankful to our amazing CNN team. – Poppy Harlow (@PoppyHarlowCNN) December 28, 2015
Update from the hospital — our little girl due this spring is doing just fine. Was a scare but we are both ok. Thank you all so much! — Poppy Harlow (@PoppyHarlowCNN) December 28, 2015
