UPDATE: Larry King reps release statement after reports of heart attack

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by YAHOO.COM:

Larry King did not have a heart attack or go into cardiac arrest, but he is recovering from a heart procedure, Yahoo can confirm.

The renowned broadcaster, 85, was scheduled for an angioplasty on Thursday. However, prior to the procedure, “he experienced angina” — chest pain caused by reduced blood flow to the heart — and was hospitalized early to be examined. His doctor then performed the angioplasty — a procedure temporarily inserting and inflating a tiny balloon to open clogged heart arteries — and inserted stents to reopen the heart bypass he had in 1987.

The article goes on to state the following:

“He has been recuperating in the hospital and is scheduled to be released soon,” a rep for Ora TV, which produces Larry King Now and PoliticKING, tells Yahoo in a statement.

In a Twitter post, Ora TV said King is expected “to make a full recovery.” They also confirmed that published reports were wrong and that King’s “doctors say he did not have a heart attack and he did not go into cardiac arrest.”

“Larry is in good spirits and thanks everyone for their concern,” the statement said. Read it below.
