His aide John Murphy said that Mr. Binienda was feeling woozy yesterday and briefly passed out before paramedics were called and treated him at the Statehouse. He was conscious and alert after being treated and paramedics recommended he go to the hospital. They transported him to nearby Massachusetts General Hospital.
Mr. Murphy said Mr. Binienda was feeling well enough last night to call his office to keep track of the flurry of legislative activity under way until the final formal session ended at midnight. He said Mr. Binienda was being monitored and having some tests done today but was feeling better.
“He is a diabetic and has been for many years. His sugar levels were very high and he did faint so to speak, but came to very quickly,” Mr. Murphy said.
