Washington, DC (WBEN) Congressman Tom Reed collapsed in the Cannon Rotunda of the Capitol Building Thursday afternoon.

Reed was about to do an interview with Fox Business Network when it happened. Reed was discharged from George Washington University Hospital after being prescribed a few days bed rest.

“Thank you to everyone for their thoughts and prayers. After my evaluation by the doctors at George Washington University Hospital, it turns out I had a previously undiagnosed case of pneumonia. I look forward to returning to work on Monday,” Reed said in a statement Friday morning.
