KCAL meteorologist Alissa Carlson Schwartz has left her viewers concerned after fainting during a live TV broadcast on Saturday morning. Schwartz, who is known for delivering the weather as part of the 7 AM updates, collapsed during her report, causing an immediate interruption to the show.
Eyewitnesses say that the popular weather presenter began leaning forward and suddenly lost consciousness, slumping to the desk before she could even start her report. There was a brief delay before the show cut to a commercial, leaving viewers anxious for an update on Carlson’s condition.
Fortunately, the update we’ve all been waiting for has arrived. Meteorologist Alissa Carlson Schwartz posted on her Facebook page this afternoon, stating, “Thanks for all the texts, calls, and well wishes. I am going to be ok!” While she didn’t provide any additional details, this is undoubtedly a relief to everyone who has been worrying about her.
The incident has been particularly alarming for viewers who know that Carlson has a heart condition. In 2014, during a weather report on another station, she became ill and vomited on set. The ensuing tests revealed that she had a leaky heart valve, which has been a concern for her ever since.
Despite the recent scare, Carlson seems to be in good spirits and optimistic about her recovery. The post on her Facebook page has received an outpouring of support from her fans and colleagues in the industry, with many wishing her a speedy recovery.
For now, we’ll have to wait for further updates on Carlson’s condition. In the meantime, we send our best wishes and hope that she makes a full and speedy recovery.
