June's record heat felled Robert Byrd, 18 other Americans. Will we wake up to the fossil fuel #climate threat? http://bit.ly/ccENk0Byrd's condition was closely guarded - POLITICO.com Print View
Byrd had fallen in February 2008 while at home in McLean, Va., which resulted in a lengthy hospital stay. In May 2009, Byrd was again in the hospital, this time with an infection. And in September, Byrd was rushed to the emergency room after collapsing in his home. In that incident, Byrd’s aides said he likely “stood up too quickly” and then fainted.
