Channel NewsAsia presenter Julie Yoo fainted and collapsed while live on-air, as she was covering the United Nations-led COP27 climate talks in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt from 6 November to 18 November.
She was presenting live on CNA’s Asia Tonight program with her co-host Jack Board, who watched on in horror as she collapsed onto the ground.
The scene then cuts back to the studio, with the studio presenter looking shocked and appearing to be at a loss for words, before recomposing herself and continuing the segment.
CNA issued a statement last night, updating that Yoo is feeling better now, and that she had fainted due to dehydration and low blood sugar.
Yoo has sought medical attention accompanied by a colleague and is resting, and will be back on air tomorrow.
CNA also thanked everyone for their concern.
