During a live TV segment at the Rose Bowl, a terrifying incident occurred when Shaka Hislop, an ESPN analyst, suddenly collapsed.
Just minutes before the Real Madrid vs AC Milan friendly match was set to begin, Hislop started stumbling forward and backward, losing consciousness. To make matters worse, he accidentally collided with his co-host Dan Thomas as he fell.
The shocking scene prompted Thomas to urgently call for help, pleading for medical assistance.
Within seconds, other members of the media and stadium security rushed to their aid. Fortunately, it was later reported that Hislop was conscious and recovering after collapsing on the field.
