TV weatherman passes out on air

An Australian weatherman passed out on live TV as he reported on the experience of intense gravity in a stunt pilot's plane.

Grant Denyer, a weatherman for Channel 7 Sunrise in Australia, was already looking queasy as pilot Matt Hall twisted and turned the plane.

"I want to see how long I can last at G8," Mr Denyer said.

"I want to know if I'm as tough as Matt Hall," he joked on-air, shortly before his body slumped to the side and his eyes rolled back into his head.

Shocked co-host Mel Doyle, watching via a satellite hookup, exclaimed: "Oh My God. He's passed out! Oh, cut! We don't want to see."
