Sen. Thom Tillis Collapses

The 56-year-old senator collapsed during a bike race, needed CPR

Sen. Thom Tillis collapsed during a Washington, D.C., race Wednesday morning and was taken away in an ambulance, but he later released a video proclaiming his health and eagerness to get back to work.

Observers told The Associated Press that Tillis, R-N.C., at first appeared unconscious but was revived and seen breathing as he left the scene.

Just before 10 a.m. Tillis posted a short video to his Twitter account from the hospital.

“Hey everybody. I’m fine; just running — about two-and-a-half miles in got overheated, no CPR, no special measures, just checkin’ me out,” Tillis said. “See you back on the Hill.”
