CNN Anchor In Doctors' Care After Passing Out On Live TV

Poppy Harlow was relaying the results of a recent poll before her speech began to slur.

CNN correspondent Poppy Harlow is in doctors’ care after passing out on live television during a report Monday.

Harlow, who was filling in for host Carol Costello on “CNN Newsroom,” had begun to describe the results of a recent poll about President Barack Obama’s handling of terrorism before her speech began to slur.

“Back on American soil, bad news for the Obama administration we have this new CNN ORC poll, which is quite …” Harlow said, trailing off.

The network then cut to a commercial, after which it aired a segment from CNN media reporter Brian Stelter about the year’s top ten media stories. Harlow then returned to the air, explaining she “got a little hot and I passed out for a moment.”

I am fine, we’re going to take a quick break. We’ll be right back,” she said.

Harlow is six months pregnant, according to a CNN spokeswoman.

On Twitter, Harlow assured viewers she was alright and thanked "our amazing CNN team." 

A few hours later, Harlow updated fans on her condition, saying both she and her unborn child are OK.
