Megan Coleman Recovering After Fainting On-Air Friday

coleman wstm faintsWSTM said anchor Megan Coleman is feeling better after leaving the Syracuse NBC affiliate’s 5:30 p.m. Friday newscast early.

About 20 minutes into the show, the anchor team were talking about the Syracuse Chiefs minor league baseball team when Coleman appeared to faint.

“You OK honey?” asked anchor Matt Mulcahy who helped Coleman as she fell forward onto the news desk. “What do you say we go to a commercial right now? Megan’s been under the weather today.”

The station reports Coleman hadn’t been feeling well, but wanted to tough it out.

A short time later – off the air –  Megan was laughing, talking and walking.  Paramedics checked her out just to be sure she was o.k.   They found her to be alright, but ordered her to get some rest and relaxation at home this weekend.
