U.K. Prime Minister Debate Canceled After Presenter Faints On-Air

A live debate between Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak, two British politicians vying for the open Prime Minister position, was canceled Tuesday after the debate’s presenter fainted on-air.

Truss was in the middle of responding to question when presenter Kate McCann fainted and loudly crashed to the floor off camera. The incident was caught on Talk TV, and Truss was visibly shaken watching McCann faint.

“Oh my god,” Truss says as McCann faints, then walked off camera to assist her, which can be seen in the Twitter video below.

Despite the loud thud, McCann ended up being fine, according to Talk TV, but the debate was canceled.

“Kate McCann fainted on air tonight and although she is fine, the medical advice was that we shouldn’t continue with the debate. We apologise to our viewers and listeners,” Talk TV tweeted.
