LA Meteorologist Collapses In Terrifying Clip On Live TV – Event Goes Viral

 March 20, 2023

Alissa Carlson Schwartz, a KCAL meteorologist, is recovering from a head injury after fainting during a live report. In a terrifying moment that has gone viral on social media, the Los Angeles CBS meteorologist was taken a local hospital, where she was treated and released. She is recovering at home. No details have been put forward as to what caused her to collapse.

During the 7:00 a.m. hour, Schwartz stunned viewers when she collapsed on live TV, after her KCAL, co-anchors cut to her for the weather report on rain in L.A. this week. Reportedly, her co-anchors, Nichelle Medina and Rachel Kim did not appear to be immediately aware of what transpired. However, they soon realized something was very wrong, telling viewers, "We’re going to take a quick break right now."

At the time, Schwartz's appeared visibly pale, leaned forward and her eyes could be seen rolling to the back of her head. She seemingly tried to catch herself from falling, but her head slumped down on her desk, before she lost consciousness and fell to the ground. According to TMZ, the morning show did not return to a live segment.

 According to the outlet, CBS Los Angeles Vice President and News Director Mike Dello Stritto disclosed that Schwartz's co-workers rushed to call 911. She was transported to a local hospital for evaluation and treatment.

On Facebook Sunday, Schwartz posted-

 "Thanks for all the kind wishes as I recover from a head injury. I am out of the hospital and doing ok. Lots of sleeping and even some pizza – TY." It is unclear if the collapse was caused by a head injury or whether she sustained the head injury as a result of her fall…."I appreciate all the prayers as I recover," …"More to come…".

While working at another network, in 2014, according to TMZ, Schwartz experienced another medical incident, when she reportedly vomited live, on set, during a weather report. She was later diagnosed with a leaky heart valve.

On Sundays, Facebook post, Schwartz said the latest collapse was unrelated to her heart. She added-

"Thankfully, it's not my heart this time," [she wrote, adding that she will be doing] "lots of sleeping" as she takes time to recover.
