On-Air EMERGENCY – News Anchor Rushed to Hospital!
(StraightNews.org) – News anchors are chosen for their quick wit, commanding yet calming presence, and ability to speak on live TV with ease. Yet, sometimes they experience difficulties while on air. This is exactly what happened to Tulsa news correspondent Julie Chin while detailing NASA’s delayed launch for Artemis I. It turns out, that a stroke forced her to stumble over her words on live TV.
On Saturday, September 3, the KJRH anchor was trying to talk about the latest NASA launch when she found herself unable to string her words together. Chin kept the show moving by cutting to her team’s meteorologist for the weather.
Thankfully, her crew recognized the signs of a stroke, called 911, and got her help. She later detailed that she lost vision in one eye and lost feeling in one of her arms before she began fumbling over her words. These are all notable signs someone is experiencing a stroke. People often experience these symptoms on one side of their body and get an intense headache as well.

A stroke can be quite scary and possibly deadly as it signals the blood flow to the brain is cut off in some way. Thankfully, Chin only experienced the first sign of a stroke and recovered. If you or anyone you know begins to feel these symptoms, call 911 immediately to get emergency help. Speed is essential in preventing lasting damage.
