Former Philadelphia District Attorney Faints During Debate



Former Philadelphia District Attorney Lynne Abraham took quite the fall during a mayoral debate Tuesday night. WCAU shows us what happened.

The host of the debate said: "All right. Ladies and gentlemen, we're going to pause for a quick break, and we'll be right back."

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.
