‘I passed out for a moment’: CNN cuts to commercial after anchor loses her ability to talk
CNN abruptly cut to commercial on Monday after host Poppy Harlow passed out.
While reading poll numbers about how Americans viewed the Obama administration’s war on terrorism, Harlow began to slur her words. Eventually, she became impossible to understand and then let out a quiet gasp before going completely silent.
Two seconds later, CNN cut to commercial. The network returned with pre-taped segment on the top news story of 2015.
But within ten minutes, Harlow was back on the air.
“For all of you on Twitter who are asking if I’m okay, thank you so much,” she said. “I got a little hot and I passed out for a moment. I am fine.”
