GE CEO Campbell collapses during Biden event

While sharing a stage in Kentucky with Vice President Joe Biden on Monday, a CEO at General Electric collapsed.

Jim Campbell, the president and CEO of GE's appliances and lighting division, fell off his stool during an event to tout stimulus funding.

Biden called for doctors, and Campbell was treated at a clinic. Apparently, the collapse was heat-related.

Let's face it, he's not the first guy to be bored comatose while Bite-me drones on.

All those people in the audience actually have to work in those conditions every day and the concern is about the poor, poor CEO who fell onto his pointy little head.
