An LA-based meteorologist fainted during a live broadcast.

Alissa Carlson Schwartz was helping CBS L.A.'s KCAL team kick off the newscast early Saturday morning, but before she could even get into her report, she lost consciousness.

You can see her eyes roll to the back of her head, and she begins to lean forward on the desk she was at. Eventually, she completely collapses.

The 2 anchors panicked and cut to commercial.

The meteorologist had previously experienced a similar episode years ago. She threw up on set during a weather report when she was at a different station and she was diagnosed with a leaky heart valve. That was back in 2014.

CBS Los Angeles Vice President and News Director Mike Dello Stritto said, “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. 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.”

The meteorologist posted on Facebook to let everyone know she’s going to be okay. She is recovering from a head injury and thankfully it isn’t her heart this time.
