WASHINGTON – Congressman Tom Reed says his sudden collapse at the Capitol Rotunda Thursday was caused by an undiagnosed case of pneumonia.
The congressmen collapsed during a medical emergency Thursday afternoon before he was scheduled to appear on Fox Business Network.
Spectrum News Reporter Samantha-Jo Roth tweeted Reed was “unconscious for about 30 seconds or so after he hit the ground.”
Paramedics checked his vitals before wheeling him out in a gurney.
In a statement to the media Friday, the congressman thanked everyone for their thoughts and prayers.
Reed said he plans to return to work on Monday.
