SALT LAKE CITY -- A Salt Lake City TV reporter is OK, but after watching the video, you might think otherwise.

Brooke Graham, a feature reporter for CBS affiliate KUTV-TV, was in the middle of a live television interview on the slopes when, all of a sudden, she passed out. After a few seconds of being down, she hops up again and continues the interview.

"I am known to faint any time I am in high altitudes and get too cold," she said in a blog post. "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 talking."

KUTV-TV posted the video on their YouTube page saying, "Reporter Brooke Graham works six days a week and is one of our hardest workers. She is doing fine following this instance and has given us permission to post the video on her behalf."

Glad you're OK, Brooke!
