VIRAL VIDEO: Reporter faints mid-interview, then continues her report

By Phyllis Stark. CREATED Jan 2, 2014

KUTV Salt Lake City reporter Brooke Graham was on a ski slope conducting an interview that was being broadcast live when she suddenly passed out cold and fell backwards into the snow. After quickly reviving, she stayed on the ground, but continued the interview, making only a passing reference to having "tripped and fell."

The station posted the video, with Graham's permission, calling her "one of our hardest workers" and noting "she is doing fine following this instance [sic] . . . She is seeking medical attention to look into what caused her to pass out."
On her blog, Graham called it "a crazy experience" and explained, "After I went down I sat up and had no idea how long I had been out but saw the camera pointed at my face and decided to keep on talking!"
Graham further revealed "this is not the first time I have passed out cold. I am known to faint any time I am in high altitudes and get too cold. (So does my twin sister Britt.) So this week I plan to go get checked out by a doctor and get to the bottom of it. In the meantime, we can all laugh at the craziness of the situation! I have laughed many times watching this video, so don’t feel bad if it makes you giggle. I feel like someone should dub [Pitbull featuring Ke$ha's] 'Timber' over it and play the fall in slow motion."
