Cadiz hospitalised in Miami after falling ill
Tourism Minister Stephen Cadiz yesterday reportedly collapsed at the Miami International Airport and had to be taken to the nearby Miami Metropolitan Hospital for urgent medical attention. Up to yesterday evening, Cadiz was still warded at the hospital. Health Minister Dr Fuad Khan said he got second-hand information that Cadiz, who was heading to a tourism-related conference in Seattle, collapsed in the baggage section of the airport.
Housing Minister Dr Roodal Moonilal, with whom Cadiz’ wife has been in touch, said he could not confirm if he actually collapsed. “I heard he began feeling unwell earlier in the afternoon at the Miami International Airport and was taken to the Metropolitan Hospital in the vicinity. “He’s currently undergoing some tests and the results will be known later.” Moonilal said Cadiz is doing well.
“He’s resting comfortably, talking and making jokes. He’s fine.” Cadiz is Chaguanas East MP and was Minister of Trade and Industry before the recent Cabinet reshuffle. Later yesterday an advisory was issued by the Office of the Prime Ministerin St Clair. “The Office of the Prime Minister would like to advise that Minister Stephen Cadiz is presently hospitalised in Miami at Metropolitan Hospital in a stable condition after falling ill earlier today en route to Seattle.
“The Minister has undergone a series of examinations and is being held overnight for observation. He will be discharged tomorrow. “Other members of his delegation will proceed as planned to Seattle,” it said.
