Late night veteran Larry King suffered a heart attack. The heart attack happened last Thursday after King went into cardiac arrest, reported TMZ.
According to sources close to the situation, Larry had been having difficulty breathing for months and was scheduled to check himself into the hospital Thursday for an angiogram.
However, his planned arrival time wasn't soon enough. As he was getting ready to go to the hospital, King went into cardiac arrest.
The Emmy winner was taken by ambulance to the hospital where doctors performed an angioplasty. They opened up an artery that had collapsed and inserted several stents.
After the surgery, the 85-year-old talk show legend was put in the cardiac intensive care unit. TMZ said he's expected to be released Monday.
Larry had been seeing doctors over the last 6 months for the breathing problems. They failed to see the severity of his issues.
Larry has had heart issues for 30 years. He's had two heart attacks in the past. Please join us in praying for his full recovery.
