A news anchor in Oklahoma worried her audience Saturday when she cut a broadcast short and began to have a stroke during a live TV broadcast.

Julie Chin, a reporter with Tulsa’s KJRH, lost vision in one eye, had her right arm go numb, and struggled to speak while she delivered a live report regarding NASA’s Artemis I rocket, according to reports.

The footage of the symptoms has since gone viral on social media.

“The episode seemed to have come out of nowhere. I felt great before our show,” Chin said in a Facebook post.

Doctors told her she had the beginnings of a stroke, but not a complete one, according to the post.

“First, I lost partial vision in one eye,” she said. “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.”

“If you were watching Saturday morning, you know how desperately I tried to steer the show forward, but the words just wouldn’t come.”

Chin thanked her coworkers for calling 911 and said she is recovering.

“I’m glad to share that my tests have all come back great,” she said. “There are still lots of questions, and lots to follow up on, but the bottom line is I should be just fine.”

She promises to be back and is working to spread awareness about strokes and how to recognize symptoms, according to reports.

“Thank you all for loving me and supporting me so well,” Chin wrote.
