Scientist Has Heart Attack During Live TV Climate Debate (Video)

During a live climate debate on Danish TV, viewers were shocked by more than the melting glaciers as climate-skeptic scientist Henrik Svensmark suffered a heart attack.

The 41-year-old physicist at the Danish National Space Center had an awkward spasm, let out a shout, and fell to the ground as other puzzled participants looked on.

"It's my heart," Svensmark yelled as his pacemaker kicked in.

The show was put on hold for 10 minutes as an ambulance was called and viewers were informed of the situation.

He was immediately rushed to the hospital, and according to the reports, he is now in stable condition.
