    Carlson toppled over onto her desk and then slumped to the floor in an apparent fainting episode. The startled anchors who had preceded her said that they would be taking a break, apparently to see how she was fairing.

    Hours after the incident, Alissa took to her Facebook and Instagram to provide the first update on her condition. “Thanks for all the texts, messages, and calls!” Carlson Schwartz wrote, “I’m going to be ok!

    Shortly after the Facebook message, CBS Los Angeles Vice President and News Director Mike Dello Stritto released a statement to local media, stressing that “Our colleague Alissa Carlson became ill during our 7 AM newscast this morning. I want to thank her co-workers who took immediate action to comfort Alissa and call 911. 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.”

    This was apparently not the first time that Carlson Schwartz had suffered a health scare during a live broadcast, as evidenced by one of the newscasters who remarked: “not again!”. Durinf another live broadcast in 2014 she was hit with severe nausea and vomited during a broadcast. She was later diagnosed with a leak in her heart valve.

    The story is enough without having to post the video.
