Pregnant CNN Anchor Faints on Live TV: 'I Got a Little Hot and Passed Out for a Moment'
Harlow was off camera but she could be heard slurring her lines: “We have this new CNN / ORC poll which is quite a, quite a turnaround.”
CNN quickly cut to a commercial.
I'm glad CNN's Poppy Harlow is okay. Passing out is terrifying. Can't imagine having that happen on the air.— John Nolte (@NolteNC) December 28, 2015
Poppy Harlow is really struggling this morning 😕 stutter on 1,000— Simone (@Up_Nextt) December 18, 2015
Ten minutes later, Harlow was back on the air.
“For all of you on Twitter who are asking if I’m ok, thank you so much, I got a little hot and I passed out for a moment, I’m fine, we're going to take a quick break and we'll be right back,” she said.
Fortunately Harlow was doing just fine later in the day and sent a message to fans 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
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
