January 22, 1985|From the Associated Press

NEW YORK — Seven members of the television studio audience fainted during the Phil Donahue show on Monday, forcing the talk-show host to evacuate the studio of everyone but his guests, crew and staff, according to a spokeswoman for the show.

Spokeswoman Penny Rotheiser said that those who passed out apparently had had little or no breakfast and were heavily dressed because of the sub-zero temperatures outside. Temperatures in the studio were in the mid-70s, she said.

Rotheiser said that the fainting victims were treated by an NBC nurse, and all revived.
