Updated: O'Malley daughter treated, released from hospital
Tara O'Malley, the 18-year-old daughter of Gov. Martin O'Malley (D), was treated and released from a Baltimore hospital Thursday night after becoming ill at a graduation celebration, First Lady Katie O'Malley said in a statement.
"Tara returned home last night, and is feeling much better," Katie O'Malley said in a statement issued late Friday morning. "As we deal with this family matter and treat it as a teachable moment, we thank the public for respecting our privacy and encourage all parents and teenagers to be safe this graduation season."
Tara O'Malley is a graduating high school senior and the second eldest of the governor's four children.
The episode was first addressed in a statement issued Thursday night by O'Malley's press secretary, Shaun Adamec, who said Tara O'Malley was "admitted, treated, and released from Harbor Hospital in Baltimore." Adamec called it "a private, family matter."
In Friday's statement, Katie O'Malley said: "Martin and I would like to thank our friends, family, and concerned Marylanders who have expressed their sincere well wishes since Tara became ill and received medical treatment after attending a graduation celebration last night."
