(Scroll down for video) A pregnant television news anchor, who passed out while reporting live on air, managed to make a comeback and complete her segment, according to a video uploaded to the Internet.

The incident unfolded on Monday morning, as CNN anchor Poppy Harlow was reporting about a poll that showed 74 percent of U.S. citizens are not satisfied with the way the war on terror is going.

The video that was uploaded on YouTube, shows the anchor slurring her words before she fainted. After a few moments, Harlow managed to come back to herself and informed her audience that she was fine.

“Thank you all for your concern and messages. I’m fine! I fainted briefly and I will see a doctor soon,” Harlow wrote on Twitter.

Harlow was not in the view of the camera when she fainted, but colleagues can be heard responding to the surprising incident in the background.

About an hour after the incident, Harlow returned to Twitter again to clarify the status of her unborn child.

“Update from the hospital. Me and my little girl due this Spring, are doing fine. Thank you all very much,” Harlow wrote on Twitter.

“To all of you who are wondering if I am fine, thank you very much,” Harlow said when she returned on CNN. “I felt a little hot, and I passed out for a moment. I’m fine,” she added.
