Local congressman Jerry Nadler had an apparent dizzy spell at an event at PS 199 on 70th Street on Friday and was taken to the hospital.
Nadler was at an event at the school to announce new speed cameras that will be placed near schools throughout the city to crack down on speeding drivers.
“Nadler looked pale and his head abruptly dropped into his hands,” the Daily News reported. “De Blasio reached over to comfort Nadler and white-coated doctors rushed onto the dais behind a sign reading Speed Cameras Save Lives.”
After being taken to the hospital Nadler tweeted an update.
“Appreciate everyone’s concern,” the update read. “Was very warm in the room this morning, was obviously dehydrated and felt a bit ill. Glad to receive fluids and am feeling much better. Thank you for your thoughts.”
