Chin looked confused as she tried to push forward with the story. But moments later, she couldn’t speak the script right in front of her.
Chin then pulled out her script as she said, “I’m sorry, something’s going on with me this morning and I apologize to everyone.”

Furthermore, she tossed the broadcast to the weather team as she continued, ‘Let’s go ahead and send it to meteorologist Annie Brown.’
Nevertheless, Brown took over the broadcast and replied with a smile, ‘Julie I love you so much, I love you so much. We all have those days.’
Regardless, instead of returning to the airwaves, Chin’s colleagues called 9-11. Soon after, she was rushed to a nearby hospital.
