NBA sportscaster Bob Rathbun suddenly lost consciousness and convulsed live on-air during an Atlanta Hawks basketball game on Tuesday.
The alarming footage shows Rathbun and former Hawks player Dominique Wilkins discussing the upcoming game with Oklahoma City when Rathbun suddenly leaned back and began having a seizure.
Bally Sports Southeast, which aired the Hawks game, said in a statement that Rathbun “briefly lost consciousness on the court” and was treated for “dehydration.”
