CNN anchor Poppy Harlow apparently passed out on Monday while in the middle of a segment on the Iraq army reclaiming Ramadi from the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq.
Harlow was introducing a new CNN-ORC poll that showed strong majority of Americans are not satisfied with how the war on terror is going when her words became jumbled and she trailed off.
“Bad news for the Obama administration, we have this new CNN-ORC poll which is quite a, quite a turnaround in, in a—,” Harlow said.
Viewers were left watching a graphic of the poll while Harlow could be heard breathing heavily off screen.
When CNN returned from commercial break, Harlow explained that she “got a little hot” and “passed out for a moment” before continuing without a problem.
Harlow, who shortly after the incident revealed over Twitter that she’s pregnant, said she went to the doctor and that she and the baby are fine.
Thank you all for your concern and messages! I am ok! Passed out briefly and am with the doctor now. So thankful to our amazing CNN team.— Poppy Harlow (@PoppyHarlowCNN) December 28, 2015
Update from the hospital -- our little girl due this spring is doing just fine. Was a scare but we are both ok. Thank you all so much!— Poppy Harlow (@PoppyHarlowCNN) December 28, 2015
Whatever happened to Poppy Harlow just a moment ago on @CNN, hoping she's all right.
