The camera stays on, as Thomas seeks help from medical services. “Shak! (referring to Hislop) Shak! Help!,” shouted Dan Thomas asking for help for his colleague. Seconds later, fellow media employees and stadium security enter the frame, before the camera focuses elsewhere.

It is not known exactly what happened to Shaka Hislop. However, the high temperatures, humidity and poor air quality at the Rose Bowl Stadium are conditions that allow this to happen. Especially in high tension situations such as doing live TV broadcasts during the pre-season tournament titled Soccer Champions Tour.
