Los Angeles Meteorologist Doing OK After Collapsing On Air

During a live news broadcast on Saturday morning, meteorologist Alissa Carlson Schwartz fainted before she could even present the weather.

The CBS Los Angeles meteorologist had just been introduced by co-anchors Nichelle Medina and Rachel Kim during the 7 a.m. KCAL News but then her eyes rolled back and she fell to the ground in a recording published by TMZ.

“Thanks for all the texts, messages, and calls!” Carlson Schwartz wrote on her Instagram Story that afternoon. “I’m going to be ok!”

Carlson Schwartz, who was crowned Mrs. California in 2018, has previously shared about a miraculous recovery from a heart condition after she was diagnosed with a leaky valve in 2014, following another incident at work. She had thrown up during a broadcast at another station.

“They told me that, eventually, the valve would probably have to be replaced. They didn’t know when it would wear out,” Carlson Schwartz said in 2018 to KGET Bakersfield, where she was chief meteorologist before joining KCAL in 2021.

After that incident, she and her husband (attorney Neil Schwartz) pursued a healthier lifestyle and welcomed a daughter named Aris. When their baby was 9 months old, Carlson Schwartz experienced chest pains and returned to the hospital according to

“It comes back that the valve had actually started to repair itself. The stem cells from my baby had started to heal my heart,” explained Carlson Schwartz then, while getting choked up.

Carlson Schwartz served as the American Heart Association’s “Circle of Red” Chairman from 2017-2019.
