Former Detroit news anchor dies after getting COVID-19 vaccine, husband says; cause of death unclear
A former Detroit news anchor reportedly died just a day after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.
Karen Hudson-Samuels, 68, worked in Detroit as a host, producer, and news director for over four decades before she died Tuesday.
Hudson-Samuel’s husband found her dead in their home. She had received the COVID-19 vaccine just the day before, but no official cause of death was given.
“We suspect it was just a stroke, but due to the normal side effects of the vaccine, he may have masked it,” said Cliff Samuels, her husband. “Hopefully we’ll know from the autopsy report soon.”
