WABC/Channel 7 reporter Lisa Colagrossi died Friday after suffering a catastrophic brain aneurysm while out on assignment, according to officials at the television station. The 49-year-old mother of two was rushed to New York-Presbyterian Weill Cornell Medical Center's neurological ICU Thursday and placed on life support. She never regained consciousness.
Colagrossi's family was at her bedside when doctors gave them the heartbreaking news that it was unlikely that she'd recover, sources said. The newsroom was left "reeling" after station general manager Dave Davis told co-workers about the tragedy.
