Update: Did Grammy Awards Reporter Have A Stroke? [Video]

L-A TV reporter Serena Branson (Youtube)

Originally it looked like Los Angeles TV reporter Serene Branson was having a very bad day.  She started fumbling her words, lost her composure and after that not one word was intelligible in her report.  Immediately some people thought she was having a stroke.  She certainly was showing the signs of a stroke. 

A CBS spokesman says paramedics on the scene checked her out.  All her vital signs were ok.  She was not hospitalized.  She was given a ride home and the next day said she felt fine.  But still, some experts say she was showing many of the signs of a stroke.  She had slurred speech and according to Dr. Larry Goldstein, director of the Duke University Stroke Center in Durham, N.C. “she appears to have had some right-side facial weakness.  Although this can be caused by other conditions, it is very concerning for stroke.”

According to the National Stroke Association a simple way to remember the signs of stroke is the acronym FAST – Face, Arms, Speech and Time. 

FACE – ask the person to smile. Does one side of their face droop?

ARMS – ask the person to raise both arms.  Does one arm drift downward?

SPEECH – ask the person to repeat a simple phrase.  Is their speech slurred or strange?

TIME – if you observe any of these symptoms, call 9-1-1 immediately.
