Kennedy, the senior senator from Massachusetts, who has been battling a malignant brain tumor since last May, was removed from the Capitol on a stretcher and rushed to Washington Medical Center.
Spokesman Edward Aulisi of the Hospital said “Senator Edward Kennedy experienced a seizure today while attending a luncheon for President Barack Obama in the US Capitol.”
“After testing, we believe the incident was brought on by simple fatigue. Senator Kennedy is awake, talking with family and friends, and feeling well.”
Senator Kennedy’s son Patrick was quoted as saying: “He’s awake, he is talking, he is going to be fine.”
