Amanda Davis Cause of Death: How Did Atlanta Anchor Die?

Colleagues described her as a “kind person who did her best every day.”

According to AJC.com, Davis, who was 62, was waiting to board a flight when she was stricken. Amanda Davis was at the Hartsfield-Jackson International airport in Atlanta on December 26 when she suffered a "massive, spontaneous stroke", according to CBS 46, where she worked.

Just last week Davis thanked a friend who had sent her flowers following her stepfather's passing, writing on Twitter: "Thanks to my GF Debbie Turman for the lovely flowers as I grieve over the loss of my pops". The Clark-Atlanta University graduate and Emmy-winning journalist spent 26 years at WAGA-TV, now a Fox affiliate. Understandably, Amanda's family is asking for "privacy at this hard time".

On Sunday, the anchor posted to Facebook about celebrating Christmas after losing a loved one.

She does leave behind a daughter.

Coalition, insurgent forces repel ISIS assault
The U.S. had focused its forces in Syria on destroying ISIS since the group came to prominence in 2014. The Al-Tanf base is located within the 55km "de-confliction" buffer zone.

Davis was at the airport because she was "headed to San Antonio following the death of her father, when the medical episode happened", according to 9News. While working at WAGA-TV, she interviewed Barack Obama.

She wrote: 'Stay strong, keep praising the Lord'. Also not clear is whether Davis may have at any point relapsed during her road to sobriety. "So sad to hear she has passed". Wednesday was the day her stepfather's funeral was scheduled to take place. 'I wanted to believe that there was still a way they could help me control it'. Amanda has been open about her struggle with alcoholism.

Davis had been with CBS 46, which is an affiliate station of Inside Edition, since January after retiring from Fox station WAGA in 2012 following a DUI-related arrest.
