WASHINGTON — Senator Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts collapsed at the congressional luncheon honoring President Obama.
Roy Blunt, the House Minority Leader, said Kennedy left the lunch
after suffering an apparent seizure. Kennedy, who is battling brain
cancer, was removed in a wheelchair to another room to be treated.
CNN reported that Kennedy was still suffering the seizure when he was taken to another room in the Capitol.
