A local CBS meteorologist had a very scary moment during a recent broadcast.

Just as she was about to give her report, she collapsed.

The moment caught everyone off guard, obviously, but she will, thankfully, be okay.

Scary Moment

Nichelle Medina and Rachel Kim were the desk anchors on the broadcast.

They had just passed it over to meteorologist Alissa Carlson Schwartz when everything went sideways.

Schwartz could be seen on the in-screen shot, then her eyes just rolled into the back of her head.

She went limp, slamming her head on the desk.

At first, it looked like her co-anchors thought she was reacting to the upcoming forecast, but they quickly realized something was wrong.

They immediately cut the live shot to attend to Schwartz…

CBS Los Angeles Vice President and News Director Mike Dello Stritto confirmed that 911 was called and she was taken to a local hospital.

On Sunday, Schwartz posted to social media that she was doing much better.

She wrote, “Thanks for all the kind wishes as I recover from a head injury. I am out of the hospital and doing ok. Lots of sleeping and even some pizza – TY.

“I appreciate all the prayers as I recover,” she wrote. “More to come…”

In 2014, Schwartz had a similar incident when she started to vomit in the middle of a live broadcast.

She wound up being diagnosed with a leaky heart valve.
