Reporter passes out in snow on live TV

Reporter Passes Out In Snow On Live TV


While reporting on cross-country skiing in Salt Lake City, KUTV reporter Brooke Graham passed out cold.

Though it was a frightening moment, Graham rebounded like a real pro. The moment she came to, she started to ask questions and joked that she had just taken a fall on the slippery snow.

Graham told 'CBS This Morning' that she didn't really know what happened, and was trying to figure out why she was on the ground.

'I am known to faint any time I am in high altitudes and get too cold,' she said in a blog post. 'I could feel myself getting light headed and tried to warn the producer that I was sick. After I went down I sat up and had no idea how long I had been out but saw the camera pointed at my face and decided to keep talking.'

KUTV-TV posted the video on their YouTube page saying, 'Reporter Brooke Graham works six days a week and is one of our hardest workers. She is doing fine following this instance and has given us permission to post the video on her behalf.'

'TODAY' says it took her just nine seconds to recover.

Water is a lot more important than I had realized, but, when I had a head infection that was not treated properly I lost a lot of hearing so my equalibriam (do not know how to spell this word) I would just be standing and I knew I was falling backward but I did not feel like I was falling so I would do nothing to stop it but luckily someone usually caught me

Lack of water. Drinking a few cups of water during your ascent or upon getting to elevation is vital because of the dehydration going on that your body does not realize.

This happens to me sometimes, when I am feeling light headed, the last time it happened I was in the middle not being paid from a customer and trying to get the money that was owed to me. the work was finished and she was'nt going to pay. I did not want to faint because i did not want to give her anymore reasons to not pay. The thing is she was Jewish and i saw it coming but did not want to believe it. Well i got shorted about 30% or $1000, and when you self employed that hurts a great deal. No good deed goes unpunished....
