US Senator Bernie Sanders had a heart attack, his doctors say


United States presidential candidate Bernie Sanders had a heart attack, his campaign confirmed on Friday as the Vermont senator was released from a Nevada hospital.

The 78-year-old was at a campaign event on Tuesday when he experienced chest discomfort and was taken to a hospital where it was determined that he had suffered a heart attack.

Doctors inserted two stents to open up a blocked artery in his heart, according to a statement from the Las Vegas doctors, who said the rest of his arteries were normal.

The statements from Sanders and his doctors do not indicate whether his heart suffered any permanent damage, or the extent of it.

The campaign also released a statement from Sanders where he thanked the doctors, nurses and hospital staff.

“After two and a half days in the hospital, I feel great, and after taking a short time off, I look forward to getting back to work,” he said.
