CNN Anchor Passes Out on Live TV
Poppy Harlow was in the middle of reporting on poll results when she started making strange sounds and later told viewers she "passed out for a moment."
CNN anchor Poppy Harlow briefly passed out during a live broadcast on Monday.
Harlow was reporting on the results of a CNN/ORC poll about whether people in the U.S. are "satisfied with how things are going in the war on terrorism" when she began making strange sounds, almost like she was slurring her words, before she stopped talking. Harlow couldn't be seen during this part of the broadcast, with the screen displaying a graphic with the poll results.
Later Harlow told viewers, "I got a little hot and I passed out for a moment. I am fine."
She shared a similar update on Twitter.
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
The pregnant anchor later indicated that both she and the baby were doing fine.
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
Harlow is the anchor of CNN Newsroom Weekend and a New York-based correspondent with the cable news network.
CNN declined to provide any additional comment.
