TV reporter faints on the air - but keeps on reporting! (video)

brooke-graham-faints-grab.jpgUtah reporter Brooke Graham was on the air on KUTV doing a report on cross-country skiing when she blacked out and collapsed on her butt. Her story subject moves to help, but she comes to a few seconds later and picks up the story. No problem.

"So I passed out during my live shot this Saturday. As in, went down HARD on live TV!," she blogs cheerily. "This is not the first time I have passed out cold. I am known to faint any time I am in high altitudes and get too cold. (so does my twin sister Britt)."

The station weather bug in the corner of the live shot says 22 degrees, and that might be back at the station. If she was up in the mountains it might have been a good bit colder.

By the way, both twins — Brooke and Brittany — work at Channel 2 in Salt Lake City as reporters.
