Jerrold Nadler falls ill during press conference with NY Mayor Bill de Blasio

Share

House Judiciary Committee chairman Rep. Jerrold Nadler is reportedly okay after he fell ill during a New York City press conference with Mayor Bill de Blasio.

Mr. de Blasio stopped his discussion of school zone camera expansion so he and others could offer help to Mr. Nadler as he began to sink forward in his chair.

Video captured by NBC’s New York affiliate WRC-TV shows Mr. de Blasio offering water to the congressman. When asked if he was okay, Mr. Nadler said, “no” before covering his face with a hand.

Mr. de Blasio cleared the room and said he would rehash the press conference once Mr. Nadler was checked out.

Video showed the congressman being taken away on a stretcher to a waiting ambulance.



Mr. Nadler has faced increased publicity as he leads House investigations of  President Trump.
