Carlson is seen on camera slowly slumping forward as her head nearly hits the table.
“As the two anchors noted at the beginning of the segment, Carlson was on set with them – but it appears she might’ve been at a different location … because they didn’t seem to notice she’d passed out until a few moments later. They panicked and cut to commercial,” TMZ noted.
“KCAL never came back to a live news report after this – the station opted to air pre-recorded/promotional programming for several hours.”
