Philly Anchor Rushed to Hospital During Newscast

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

Philadelphia anchor, Lucy Noland, is recovering after being rushed to the hospital in the middle of Monday night’s newscast.

“At the count of three I lifted my head, sat as straight as I could as a knife felt like it jabbed through my stomach with the pain radiating out. Deep breath. Read. I did. Made it through two stories on FOX 29 at 5 before the pain, dizziness and shortness of breath took me down,” the Fox 29 anchor said in a Facebook post.

Nolan was anchoring the 5pm newscast on WTXF when she says the pain got the best of her. Iain Page, solo anchored the rest of the show while a station photographer took her to the hospital.

While doctors have not given her an official diagnosis, Nolan says she will be fine.

No word when she’ll be back on air.
