julie chin gave viewers an update on his health after suffering a medical emergency during a live broadcast.
The news anchor, who works for KJRH, an NBC affiliate in Tulsa, Oklahoma, said This day on September 7, “I feel fine,” just four days after he experienced what doctors told him was the “beginning of a stroke.”
On the morning of September 3, Chin recalled having difficulty reading the words on the teleprompter and noticed that his hand and thumb were beginning to feel numb. She said she tried to text her husband during the medical episode, but she couldn’t type the right words.
“I need help. Something is wrong today,” reads the text Chin sent to her husband, according to This day. “My work won’t work, it’s working, help me.”
Chin added that he never texts like that, but that he “just couldn’t get any words together, no matter how hard he tried.”
