PHILADELPHIA, : Philadelphia District Attorney Lynne Abraham talks during a press conference 18 February in Philadelphia, on the French government's agreement to extradite convicted murderer Ira Einhorn, who is living in the Bordeaux region of France. Abraham said she was elated about the decision but expressed concern that Einhorn could flee to another country during the appellate process that could take another two years. The French ruled that he may not be taken into custody during that period. Einhorn, who was convicted in absentia in 1981 for the 1978 murder of his then girlfriend Holly Maddux, will get a new trial on his return to the US and is not eligible for the death penalty since Pennsylvania did not have the death penalty at the time of the crime.  (Photo credit: TOM MIHALEK/AFP/Getty Images)

As you can tell by the gasps in the crowd, that was a hard fall.

A morning anchor on "Fox & Friends" said: "Abraham quickly regained consciousness and was helped off stage."

NewsWorks, a Philadelphia news outlet, reports that Abraham was treated backstage and told by a doctor she had low blood pressure.

The debate, hosted by the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce, continued without Abraham.

She seems to be doing all right, though She tweeted a picture afterwards, letting everyone know she was okay.

She even joked about it at a press conference that same evening.

Abraham said, "How'd you like my opening act?"

That's not an opening act we'd like to see again.
