Reporter passes out on live television — then continues interview

The show must go on.

Salt Lake City reporter Brooke Graham admits that she doesn't do well at high altitudes or in cold temperatures. That didn't stop the KUTV feature reporter from doing a live interview in both of those conditions.

Just as she began to ask the interviewee about cross-country skiing, Graham passed out, landing on the snow with a loud thud.

She woke up on the ground — and continued the interview.

Graham addresses the now-viral blooper video on her personal blog.

"A lot of people have expressed concern and well wishes and I really appreciate it," she writes. "However, 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."

She continues:

"I could feel myself getting light headed and tried to warn the producer that I was sick. 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!"
