Local LA meteorologist collapses on live TV in frightening moment.
CBS Los Angeles weather woman Alissa Carlson Schwartz’s co-anchors had just cut to her to deliver her 7 a.m. weather report when she appeared to turn white and leaned forward uneasily on her desk.
It’s not clear what caused her to faint, however, TMZ reported that Schwartz experienced a similar episode back in 2014 when she was working at another network.
“I want to thank [Schwarz’s] co-workers who took immediate action to comfort Alissa and call 911,” CBS Los Angeles Vice President and News Director Mike Dello Stritto told TMZ. “Alissa is being treated at the hospital right now. Hopefully we’ll know more shortly. In the meantime, Alissa will be in our thoughts and we’re praying for her to be feeling much better soon.”
