A TV news reporter in Canada is recuperating after what looked to be a medical incident during a live standup routine on January 8.
Jessica Robb was performing a live report for CTV Edmonton at the time of the event, which has now gone viral online. The first ten seconds seemed to go over without a hitch, but Robb caught her breath after that and struggled to get her words out before explaining what was going on.
“I’m not feeling very well right now and I’m about to …” she said, not finishing her thought before anchor Nahreman Issa cut her off.
“OK, we’ll come back to you. Right now, we’ll make sure that Jessica, you are doing OK,” Issa said, while Robb appeared to lose her balance.
“We will give you guys an update a little bit later to make sure that she is doing alright,” she added.
That night, CTV Edmonton shared an update that Robb was better.
“PROGRAMMING NOTE: Thanks to everyone who inquired about our reporter who became ill during the 6 p.m. News. Jessica Robb is feeling better and is now resting,” the station tweeted.
