QVC Guest Host

Collapses

On Live TV

breaking news



100812_qvc_faintQVC guest host Cassie Slane experienced an on-air medical emergency yesterday on live TV -- clutching her chest and collapsing on her co-host -- but thankfully, she's doing much better now.

Cassie and co-host Dan Hughes were hocking tablet devices for kids on the show "Sundays with Carolyn and Dan" when Cassie suddenly looked ill and fell over, appearing to faint. 

The camera immediately cut away -- but Dan kept pitching the product, presumably while Cassie received some kind of medical attention.

Cassie returned to the camera moments later to pick up right where she left off ... but a few seconds in, she started slurring her words. The camera cut again and Dan finally said, "Cassie's having a little problem."

It's unclear what went wrong -- but Cassie took to Twitter hours ago, saying, "Thanks everyone for the well wishes. Feeling better today."

FYI -- it's not the first time Cassie has collapsed on air --a similar incident occurred during an electronics segment in 2010.

Very scary! Looks like she may be dealing with a personal medical condition if it's happened twice on TV alone. Prayers to her that she gets the care she needs and I'm glad she is okay!

Yes, because by all means, don't stop hocking the product just because someone is having a medical issue.

Bizarre. Seizures and low blood sugar that drops you require recovery time. That's weird, especially since she did it a few years ago too. I sure hope she doesn't drive.

This is why women shouldn't be allowed to drive.

That final look she gave him right before she taps her chest was quite scary.... I can't imagine if she's on the road driving and suffers the same episode of collapsing!

great info by Dr Oz Why You Faint

Fainting is a temporary loss of consciousness due to a loss of blood supply to the brain. The heart is continuously pumping blood to your brain, delivering oxygen. If for some reason your heart stops pumping oxygen to your brain, you’ll start getting woozy or cloudy in about 3 to 5 seconds. Then, all of a sudden, you’ve fainted. Fainting can cause injury if the person falls and hurts themselves, or if the faint occurs while participating in an activity like driving a car.
