A local Los Angeles weather forecaster suddenly collapsed in a terrifying moment on Saturday morning while watching live television.

Los Angeles-based CBS weatherwoman Alissa Carlson Schwartz’s co-hosts had just switched to her to deliver her 7 a.m. weather report when she appeared to go pale and leaned forward uncomfortably on her desk.

Schwartz tried to calm down, but suddenly her eyes rolled to the back of her head.

She slowly sagged forward until her head almost touched the table.

Her co-hosts Nichelle Medina and Rachel Kim don’t seem to notice at first.

After a few seconds, Kim let out an “Oh!” and Medina tells viewers, “We’re going to take a short break now.”

“Yes,” Kim agreed as the network switched to advertising.

According to TMZ, the morning show did not return to a live segment.

Schwartz later posted on Facebook around 2:30 p.m. that she “will be fine!” and thanked friends and spectators for the congratulations.

It’s not clear what caused her to faint, but TMZ reported that Schwartz experienced a similar episode in 2014 while working at another network.

Schwartz vomited on set during a weather report and was diagnosed with a leaking heart valve as a result, according to the outlet.

“I want to say thank you [Schwarz’s] Colleagues who took immediate action to comfort Alissa and call 911,” Mike Dello Stritto, vice president and news director of CBS Los Angeles, told TMZ. “Alissa is being treated at the hospital right now. Hopefully we’ll know more soon. In the meantime, we will be thinking of Alissa and praying that she gets much better soon.”
