Kennedy Wheeled Out of Capitol

WASHINGTON -- Senator Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts collapsed at the congressional luncheon honoring President Obama.

Roy Blunt, the House Minority Leader, said Kennedy left the lunch after suffering an apparent seizure. Kennedy, who is battling brain cancer, was removed in a wheelchair to another room to be treated.

CNN reported that Kennedy was still suffering the seizure when he was taken to another room in the Capitol. The Associated Press is reporting that Kennedy has been wheeled out of the Capitol on a stretcher.

MSNBC is reporting that several senators prayed for Kennedy after the seizure and showed footage of several escorting him to the ambulance. - Boston.com
