CBS46 Anchor Amanda Davis died Wednesday after suffering a massive stroke at Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. She was 62.
Davis suffered a massive stroke while waiting to board a flight at Hartsfield on Tuesday night. She was on her way to San Antonio, Texas to bury her father, according to 9News.
On CBS46's 5 p.m. newscast, Anchor Sharon Reed said Davis's family was with her at the hospital. “As you might imagine, they're going through an incredible ordeal right now. We're praying with them."
Davis, who worked for 26 years at Fox 5 Atlanta, was let go in 2013 after a series of well-publicized drunk driving arrests.
She worked for the past 3 years as morning anchor at CBS46. Her family is asking for privacy, according to Reed.
Davis leaves behind an adult daughter, Melora Rivera.
My dad, Theodore Roosevelt Davis, was relieved of his suffering today and is now at peace. This was taken on his birthday, September 30th. That’s my mom. I? took her to see him because he had been sick. Good to see him smile. Love you Pops???? pic.twitter.com/ApgxGajVuT
