THE ANGELS — A television meteorologist in Los Angeles was recovering Sunday after collapsing on air during a weekend newscast.
Alissa Carlson was starting her forecast Saturday on CBS Los Angeles when she suddenly collapsed onto her desk, then collapsed on the floor.
News co-anchor Rachel Kim exclaimed “Oh!” and the broadcast cut to a commercial break.
“Our team stepped in to help and comfort her as she waited for medical help to arrive,” CBS LA said in a statement. “Alissa is now recovering and posting on social media.”
In a Facebook post, Carlson thanked viewers for “all the texts, calls and well wishes.”
“I’ll be fine!” she wrote.
The news station and Carlson did not release any details about why she passed out.
The meteorologist will return to the air “as soon as she is well enough to return,” CBS LA said.
