TV presenter presses on as co-host faints
A QVC host carried on with his sales pitch to viewers - despite his co-presenter fainting beside him live on air.
Dan Wheeler was in the middle of promoting a computer tablet with QVC technology expert Cassie Slane when she suddenly collapsed.
"Kids love tablets. They love playing with tablets, they love the games," she said before beginning to slur her words.
Appearing flustered, Ms Slane then patted herself on the chest before falling towards her co-host and onto a table.
However, the unruffled Mr Wheeler didn't miss a beat as he continued his sales pitch as the cameras switched to a shot of the product.
Ms Slane later took to Facebook to reassure viewers she was recovering, while a colleague put the incident down to 'low blood sugar levels'.
"Thanks to everyone for your kind words," she wrote. "I am feeling a lot better today!"

what do you think?
The poor woman is probably not getting enough money to pay for food. With 14% unemployment in the US, it's not surprising people don't have enough money to buy from television shopping channels.
I cant beleave that after she fainted they put her back infrount of the camera a few min later.....
Took some guts to get up again. I am not convinced about her having low blood sugar levels she needs to visit her doctor for a check-up.
so true is unbrelievable they let her continue a litl bit later, hope she feels better now and got her health checked from some experts.
