"This afternoon, while filming a scene for The Good Wife in Brooklyn, a gust of wind blew a lighting silk out of place, striking actress Kristin Chenoweth," CBS TV Studios said in a statement. "She received treatment on the scene by the show's medic until a New York Fire Department emergency medical team arrived and transported her to the hospital. All of us at the studio and the show are thinking about Kristin and wishing her a quick recovery."

A witness told TMZ, which first reported the news, that Chenoweth appeared to be "knocked out cold." A call was reportedly made to 911 just after 5 p.m. Eastern.
