Bill Clinton in "Good Spirits" After Being Rushed to Hospital
Former President Bill Clinton was rushed to a New York City hospital Thursday afternoon after suffering chest pains, ABC News is reporting.
Clinton, 63, was admitted to Columbia Presbyterian Hospital for a heart condition "after feeling discomfort in his chest," his lawyer, Douglas Band, said in a statement.
"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," continued Band.
Clinton's wife, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, was seen departing the Oval Office in the White House Thursday afternoon; she "did not seem 'too concerned'or 'in a rush,'" sources told ABC.
Clinton successfully underwent quadruple bypass surgery in September 2004.
