CNN anchor Poppy Harlow says she passed out while at the anchor desk on Monday, while introducing a segment about the latest CNN/ORC poll on Americans' attitudes about the war on terrorism.

Twitter users immediately speculated that something must have been wrong.

"America's Newsroom" returned with a segment featuring media reporter Brian Stelter, who then tossed back to Harlow, who thanked viewers for their concern.

She explained, "I got a little hot, and I passed out for a moment." 

Harlow said she was fine and continued with the news.
