Rep. Pascrell says he's fine after heat exhaustion
U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell says he's doing fine after nearly collapsing due to heat exhaustion at an event Tuesday with Sen. Bob Menendez.
The 81-year-old, who represents New Jersey's 9th Congressional District, appeared to become weak and was assisted by firefighters onto a chair.
"Thanks for all your concern, support, and well wishes," Pascrell tweeted Wednesday. "If you have to suffer from heat exhaustion anywhere, make it a firehouse. I deeply appreciate all the assistance from our first responders."
He followed up that tweet by saying he was at home, spending the Fourth of July with family.
