Reporter Passes Out During Live TV Segment, Then Keeps On Reporting (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

At least she had the snow to break her fall.

During a recent segment on cross-country skiing, KUTV 2 News' Brooke Graham briefly fainted on the air. In a clip posted on YouTube, the Salt Lake City reporter passes out momentarily before popping right back up to continue reporting.

"I just slipped and fell," she explained through giggles as she sat up in the snow.

Graham later took to the blog she shares with her sister to provide the full story:

So I passed out during my live shot this Saturday. As in, went down HARD on live TV! Ha, such a crazy experience. A lot of people have expressed concern and well wishes and I really appreciate it. However, this is not the first time I have passed out cold. I am known to faint any time I am in high altitudes and get too cold.

While Graham is well aware that her YouTube moment is last-minute contender for the best 2013 news bloopers, she doesn't have any hard feelings about viewers laughing at her fainting spell.

"I have laughed many times watching this video so don’t feel bad if it makes you giggle," she wrote in the blog post.
