An American TV reporter displayed supreme dedication to journalism when she fainted during a live interview, before regaining consciousness and completing the report from the ground onto which she had fallen.

Brooke Graham from US station KUTV said she is "fine" after the incident, which happened while she did a report on cross-country skiing amid chilly temperatures in Utah.

Graham later wrote in her blog that it was not the first time she had fainted due to adverse weather, and she gave viewers permission to laugh at the moment she froze on camera - literally.

I am known to faint any time I am in high altitudes and get too cold.

This week I plan to go get checked out by a doctor and get to the bottom of it.

In the meantime, we can all laugh at the craziness of the situation! I have laughed many times watching this video so don’t feel bad if it makes you giggle.
