North Carolina Sen. Thom Tillis Collapses During Race, Taken Away By Ambulance


Republican Sen. Thom Tillis of North Carolina says he was “overheated” during a Washington, D.C., race Wednesday morning, in which he collapsed and was taken away by ambulance.

Tillis, 57, was seen on the ground at about the two-mile mark in the three-mile race in Anacostia Park in the southeast part of the city.

Tillis at first appeared unconscious but was revived and breathing when taken away by ambulance from the ACLI Capital Challenge Three Mile Team Race.

In a video posted to Twitter later Wednesday morning, Tillis said he’s “fine” and said doctors were “just checking me out.” Read more at CBS NEWS.
