It was a heartbreaking moment from live television Saturday when a CBS Los Angeles (KCAL) meteorologist passed out and collapsed during a morning newscast.

«KCAL News Meteorologist Alissa Carlson was about to start her weather forecast this morning when she passed out,» CBS Los Angeles said in an update Saturday. «Our team stepped in to help and comfort her while she waited for medical help to arrive.»

In the Saturday morning newscast video, co-anchors Rachel Kim and Nichelle Medina spoke with Carlson to get an update on the weather.

“Who’s ready for some sun? I know who I am. Let’s start with an upcoming weather check of hers with meteorologist Alyssa Carlson. She joins us live in the studio,” says Medina.

As Medina continues to speak, viewers see Carlson’s eyes roll to the back of his head before he slumps over and collapses.

Kim lets out a worried «Oh» before Medina says they’re going to break up.

After the incident, KCAL posted on Twitter that Carlson «is now resting and recovering.»

Carlson published in his own Facebook thanking people for «all the texts, calls and well wishes».

«I’ll be fine!» she wrote.

The news station and Carlson did not release any details about why Carlson passed out.

KCAL said the meteorologist will return to work «as soon as she is well enough to return.»

This isn’t the first time Carlson has gotten sick on the air.

The meteorologist, who previously worked for NBC affiliate KGET, vomited during a newscast in 2014. saying.

Carlson thought he had flu symptoms, but was later told by a doctor that he had a leaky heart valve.

«So I went to the doctor and they said ‘have you ever thought about having a heart condition?’ And I said, ‘Are you kidding? No, I’m too young for that and I’m very healthy.'»

Carlson said stem cells from her pregnancy with her daughter had begun to repair the leaky heart valve.

«My baby’s stem cells had started to heal my heart,» Carlson said through tears. «I feel like I owe it to people, to everyone and to God, to give back and spread the story and help people realize that you might have something that you don’t even know what you have.»

It’s unclear if Carlson still suffers from the leaky heart valve or if it was related to his collapse in Saturday’s incident.
