This CNN anchor passed out live on the air but says she's 'fine' now

CNN anchor Poppy Harlow showed true dedication to her work after fainting live on-air Monday. The pregnant broadcaster then recovered and said she and her baby were “fine.”

The incident occurred as Harlow began a story about President Obama and a CNN/ORC poll that found 74% of respondents didn’t approve of how he’s handling the fight on terrorism.

Then, while an on-air graphic filled the screen, Harlow began slurring her words, breathing irregularly, and then fell silent.

Viewers immediately noticed and began tweeting about what happened.

Later, the newswoman returned on-air and addressed the incident.

“For all of you on Twitter asking if I’m OK, thank you so much,” Harlow said. “I got a little hot and I passed out for a moment. I am fine.”

Afterward, the anchor went to the hospital and tweeted how she was doing to fans.
