A Salt Lake City news reporter became the unwitting star of her own story when she passed out cold on live TV yesterday.
And that’s not even the best part!
As her cameraman continued to roll, KUTV’s Brooke Graham sat up, shook it all off and managed to finish conducting her interview.
She had quite the sense of humor about it, when she explained the situation to fans today on her personal blog:
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. (so does my twin sister Britt) So this week I plan to go get checked out by a doctor and get to the bottom of it. In the meantime, we can all laugh at the craziness of the situation! I have laughed many times watching this video so don’t feel bad if it makes you giggle. I feel like someone should dub Keisha “Timber” over it and play the fall in slow motion. Special thanks to Richard, President of the Nordic Alliance, who was with me all morning. He handled the situation so gracefully and was so sweet and made sure I was okay. I could feel myself getting light headed and tried to warn the producer that I was sick. After I went down I sat up and had no idea how long I had been out but saw the camera pointed at my face and decided to keep on talking!
The station posted the video — which is sure to go viral — on YouTube with a message that reads:
“KUTV Reporter Brooke Graham works six days a week and is one of our hardest workers. She is doing fine following this instance and has given us permission to post the video on her behalf”
