APNU Member of Parliament Vanessa Kissoon was this evening taken to the hospital from the National Assembly via one of the two ambulances there after complaining of feeling unwell.
Shortly after the commencement of the second session of the 2014 budget debates, Kissoon was seen being led out of the House by her colleague Dr George Norton as she hugged herself.
She was seen by the members of the medical team who are stationed at Parliament Buildings and was later seen being led to the ambulance.
Leader of APNU David Granger, who was with Kissoon when she entered the ambulance, later told Stabroek News that Kissoon had a “crisis”. He said she went to the hospital in the company of Dr Norton for observation.
Last year another APNU member, Richard Allen collapsed in Parliament and had to be rushed to the hospital. He eventually resigned his seat in the House and it was following this incident an ambulance was stationed at Parliament Buildings.
