Colagrossi was rushed to the hospital following a live report from Woodhaven, Queens on Thursday. “She was in the news van after finishing her live shot when she said ‘Oh my God, something is wrong,’” a friend said, via the New York Daily News.

The Ohio native reported in the Tri-State area for almost 14 years, and joined WABC days after the NYC World Trade Center attacks in 2001. She previously worked as an anchor at WKMG in Orlando, Fla., and NBC station WKYC-TV in Cleveland.
