NY: Lowey Recovering from 'Coronary Incident'

By Spencer Hsu
Rep. Nita Lowey (D-N.Y.) is recovering from a "minor coronary incident" experienced after attending a campaign rally for Hillary Rodham Clinton in White Plains on Saturday, a spokesman said.

The 70-year-old Bronx native was standing on stage for about 90 minutes and began to feel faint, spokesman Matt Dennis said. She was taken to White Plains Hospital and transferred to New York-Presbyterian Hospital at Columbia University in Manhattan for testing.

"She's doing well, she's feeling much better, we expect she's probably going to be out of the hospital tomorrow," Dennis said this morning, adding that Lowey's family was with her.

Lowey represents Westchester and Rockland counties and was first elected to the House in 1988. Her spokesman said he was not giving details about her condition.
