BREAKING: Bill Clinton Rushed To NYC Hospital With Chest Pains
CNN is reporting that Bill Clinton has just been rushed to a NYC hospital after complaining of chest pains. Clinton underwent a quadruple bypass in 2004 and has been closely monitored for continuing heart problems ever since. Horrible news. I'll post updates here immediately upon getting them.
UPDATE: Clinton has undergone a stent procedure at Columbia New York-Presbyterian in Washington Heights, about 40 blocks north of his Harlem office.
Douglas Band, counselor to Mr. Clinton, issued this statement: “Today President Bill Clinton was admitted to the Columbia Campus of New York Presbyterian Hospital after feeling discomfort in his chest. Following a visit to his cardiologist, he underwent a procedure to place two stents in one of his coronary arteries. President Clinton is in good spirits, and will continue to focus on the work of his Foundation and Haiti’s relief and long-term recovery efforts. In 2004, President Clinton underwent a successful quadruple bypass operation to free four blocked arteries.”
