Video: CNN anchor passes out during live broadcast

CNN anchor and correspondent Poppy Harlow passed out during her broadcast on live TV Monday.

Immediately after CNN correspondent Becky Anderson gave an update on Iraq’s fight against the Islamic State, Harlow began slurring her words.

Shortly after the segment came back to Harlow, a graphic of President Obama’s falling poll numbers replaced her image and her slurring became worse. When she stopped talking, colleagues can be heard in the background and several gasps can also be heard.

She later returned, stating that she had felt “a little hot.”

Watch the clip, via CNN.

Harlow, who is expecting a daughter in the spring, gave her thanks for all who had expressed concern.

Matt Drudge first reported the incident on Twitter. Not everyone who replied was sympathetic, however.

And then there was this:
