Tillis says he's 'fine' after race collapse

Tillis says he's 'fine' after race collapse

Washington D.C. television reporter, Debra Alfarone, shared a photo on Twitter of ambulance crews getting ready to transport Tillis to the hospital.

The weather in Washington around the reported time of Tillis' collapse was 70 degrees, National Weather Service meteorologist Dan Hofmann said.

He was leading his own team, 'Team Tillis, ' which raised money for a guide dog charity.

Roll Call confirmed that Tillis collapsed in the vicinity of the two-mile marker along the course through Anacostia Park.

Tillis was participating in the ACLI Capital Challenge Three Mile Team Race at 8 a.m. this morning when he collapsed due to a seizure, CNN reports. That's good to hear.

"Hey everybody, I'm fine", Tillis said from a hospital bed. The tweet included a video where Tillis says he's fine but just got "overheated" about 2.5 miles into the race.

Roll Call's Simone Pathé, who ran in the race, reported that she, "saw a man wearing a dark t-shirt [later identified as Tillis] lying on his back on the grass, with his hands over his head on the ground". Just checking me out.

Gov. Roy Cooper of North Carolina, a Democrat, tweeted well wishes to Tillis. "See you back on the Hill", the first-term senator said.

Tillis, age 56, was elected to the Senate in 2014.

Tillis is married with two children.

His office sent out a second video message Wednesday afternoon, after Tillis had returned to the Senate.

When not in Washington, Tillis lives north of Charlotte and is a former speaker of the North Carolina House of Representatives.

State Democratic Party Chairman Wayne Goodwin issued a statement of support Wednesday in support of his fellow sentator.

    Although Arsenal beat Manchester United last week, they don't look the quality settled side we have seen in recent seasons. I think we managed in the second half to keep playing our game and waiting and being patient until the opportunity comes.
