House Legislator Kuempel (R-Seguin) In Intensive Care

Texas House legislator Rep. Edmund Kuempel (R-Seguin) was found unconscience Tuesday evening from an apparent heart attack in a capitol building elevator by the House Sergeant at Arms Jennifer Irvy. Emergency medical services personnel used a defibrillator to restore heart activity before Kuempel was transported to Brackenridge Hospital where he remains in remains in the intensive care unit.
From Quorum Report: He is on a ventilator in a medically induced coma and will be so for the next several days as physicians monitor his condition. They will know more as they bring him back up.

Physicians reportedly feel good about his prospects. They believe he was found and resuscitated in time. But nothing will be certain for several more days.

The 81st regular session of the Texas Legislature is scheduled to adjourn on June 1, 2009.
