‘I’m sorry, something is going on with me this morning’: Oklahoma news anchor suffers a STROKE live on air as she stumbles over her words -Daily Mail
Julie Chin, of Tulsa NBC affiliate KJRH, suffered the ‘beginnings’ of a stroke while on air, and couldn’t speak the words she was reading off her teleprompter
When the Oklahoma news anchor suffered the beginnings of a stroke on air, it left her unable to speak her script aloud. Because of this, she was forced to cut the broadcast short. She was rushed to the hospital and did not return to the airwaves.
Chin took to Facebook to explain that she had the beginnings of a stroke, but that she would be fine.
Chin felt normal before the broadcast, but her condition deteriorated suddenly and rapidly. She couldn’t speak the words on the teleprompter, lost part of her vision, and felt numbness in her left arm and left hand.
Chin said she was okay and would be back to work within days. She also thanked her colleagues for their quick action and said she would be back on camera within a few days.
