An alarming number of young people in recent months have suddenly collapsed with an unexpected medical emergency.
Popular meteorologist Alissa Carlson appeared to faint and fall to the floor during a disturbing, on-air weather report.
TV anchors Nichelle Medina and Rachel Kim welcomed viewers to the local CBS-affiliate news outlet before turning the segment to Carlson. Carlson slumps forward onto her desk and collapses. WATCH:

“Who is ready for some sunshine? I know I am,” Medina asks as Kim raises her hand.
The network immediately cut to commercial when they realized what happened.
CBS officials released a statement, saying, “Our colleague Alissa Carlson became ill during our 7 AM newscast this morning.”
“I want to thank her co-workers who took immediate action to comfort Alissa and call 911. Alissa is being treated at the hospital right now,” CBS LA Vice President and News Director Mike Dello Stritto said.
“Hopefully we’ll know more shortly. In the meantime, Alissa will be in our thoughts and we’re praying for her to be feeling much better soon.”

Carlson announced on social media that she is “going to be ok!”
No cause of the episode has been revealed. Carlson was previously diagnosed with a leaky heart valve in 2014. She once vomited at work while with another station.
Given Carlson’s history with heart issues, there is widespread speculation about the possible impact of the newly developed COVID-19 vaccine and booster shots on the health of Americans.
Unfortunately, any questions or criticism about the COVID vaccine are effectively censored, banned, and labeled “false” or “misleading” by the almighty truth-bearers overseeing social media and the government-run CDC.
Multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical companies are also wielding their power, influence, and money to shape the national discourse surrounding their drugs. Twitter boss Elon Musk recently exposed internal documents proving Pfizer board member Dr. Scott Gottlieb helped censor Americans online.
The CDC openly admits that myocarditis and pericarditis (inflammation of the outer lining of the heart) appear to be “rare side effects of COVID vaccination, especially prevalent in adolescents and young men.”
Despite this concern, the CDC says the vaccine is safe for “the vast majority of people” and that data shows “the low risk of complications from the vaccine is outweighed by the reward.” Dr. Tom Shimabukuro, deputy director of the CDC’s Immunization Safety Office, told NBC News that there have been hundreds of cases of myocarditis or pericarditis had been reported in vaccinated people under the age of 30.
Many Americans have been suspicious of the coercing and outright bribing of individuals to inject the new COVID-19 vaccines and booster shots.
It’s widely known that the Johnson & Johnson coronavirus vaccine has caused at least 60 cases of life-threatening blood clots and nine confirmed deaths, according to Yale Medicine, although the data is likely incomplete. More than 18 million people received the J&J shot.
In January 2023, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) finally announced a “safety signal” regarding the COVID-19 vaccine from Pfizer (Bivalent Pfizer-BioNTech). For certain people who are 65 and older, there is a possible safety concern that the vaccine “creates an increased risk of ischemic stroke,” according to Fox News.
Ischemic stroke occurs when blood clots or other particles block the blood vessels to the brain. However, this “safety signal” shows a possible increase of stroke for people 65 and older. It says nothing about the risk for kids, like Ramirez’s son. The CDC is conducting further investigation into the vaccine from Bivalent Pfizer-BioNTech.
The signal hasn’t been identified with the Bivalent Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. CNN reported on the news of the safety signal, but emphasized that the CDC still recommends nearly everyone receives the vaccine and boosters.
Back in 2014, Carlson and her husband said they have “went on to adopt an even healthier lifestyle” to handle her heart condition.
