Her co-anchors Nichelle Medina and Rachel Kim at first didn’t notice Schwartz had fainted.
“Alissa, this really is the calm before the storm,” Kim said before letting out a surprised “oh!” upon realizing her colleague was on the ground.
“You know, we’re going to go ahead and go to break, right now,” Medina told the audience.
“Yeah,” Kim agreed.
CBS Los Angeles Vice President and News Director Mike Dello Stritto issued a statement hours after Schwartz fainted, confirming she had been hospitalized.
“Our colleague Alissa Carlson became ill during our 7 AM newscast this morning. I want to thank her co-workers who took immediate action to comfort Alissa and call 911,” Stritto told TMZ.
“Alissa is being treated at the hospital right now. Hopefully we’ll know more shortly. In the meantime, Alissa will be in our thoughts and we’re praying for her to be feeling much better soon,” he added.
Notably, Schwartz suffered a similar spell in 2014 where she vomited live on air, before she was diagnosed with a leaky heart valve.
Though the exact cause of her fainting is unknown, Schwartz’s on-air loss of consciousness fits a similar pattern observed since the introduction of experimental Covid jabs wherein people have inexplicably fainted, many times live on camera.
