Lt. Gov Cawley released from hospital

Posted: Updated:
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. Jim Cawley has been released from a hospital a day after he became light-headed while presiding over a state Senate session.

His spokesman said Cawley left Harrisburg Hospital with his family Tuesday after medical tests indicated he had an elevated blood pressure and heart rate.

The 44-year-old Cawley was given medicine and his doctors will continue to monitor him, but he is expected to return to full schedule later this week or early next week, his spokesman said.

Cawley left the Senate rostrum and went to an adjoining room of the chamber when he felt lightheaded Monday afternoon.

A Capitol nurse examined him and sent him to the hospital.

His spokesman said Cawley had no history of needing hospitalization since he took office in 2011, and a physical over the summer raised no issues out of the ordinary.
