An Oklahoma news anchor has revealed she suffered the beginning of a stroke live on air after she started stumbling over her words.

Julie Chin, who works for the NBC affiliate KJRH in Tulsa, was rushed to hospital on Saturday after she found herself struggling to read the teleprompter in front of her.

“The past few days are still a little bit of a mystery, but my doctors believe I had the beginnings of a stroke live on the air Saturday morning. Some of you witnessed it firsthand, and I’m so sorry that happened,” Chin said in a Facebook post late Sunday.

“The episode seemed to have come out of nowhere. I felt great before our show,” she continued.

“However, over the course of several minutes during our newscast things started to happen. First, I lost partial vision in one eye. A little bit later my hand and arm went numb. Then, I knew I was in big trouble when my mouth would not speak the words that were right in front of me on the teleprompter.”

Chin had been reporting on the now-canceled NASA launch when she became visibly confused and started repeating her words.

After struggling for several seconds, Chin ended up apologizing to viewers, saying “I’m sorry, something is going on with me this morning.”

She quickly passed the baton over to meteorologist Annie Brown for a weather update, but Chin failed to return to the air for the remainder of the broadcast.

“My co-workers recognized the emergency situation unfolding and called 911,” Chin said in her post.

The anchor said she underwent a string of tests in hospital to determine the cause of her on-air episode.

“At this point, doctors think I had the beginnings of a stroke, but not a full stroke,” Chin revealed.

“There are still lots of questions, and lots to follow up on, but the bottom line is I should be just fine.”
