CNN anchor Poppy Harlow scared viewers after she passed out on-air on Monday morning.
Harlow was reporting on the findings of a new CNN poll discussing international terrorism when her speech began to be slurred and the network cut to black.
Twitter users posted concerned messages and some asked if Harlow had had a stroke or other kind of attack.
A few minutes later Harlow re-appeared on air and said she “got a little hot” and had “passed out for a moment” but was fine, and continued with her broadcast.
