|Description||Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) rushed to the aid of a young visitor who passed out during a Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee hearing late Tuesday morning. |
At approximately 10:55 a.m., a young man collapsed in the back of the committee's hearing room, which is on the third floor of the Dirksen Senate Office Building. He appeared to be a student who had been standing to watch the hearing.
When it became apparent that someone needed help, Committee Chair Jeff Bingaman (D-N.M.) was overheard asking, "Is there a doctor?" Ranking member Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) responded, "We have one!"
Dr. Barrasso, a board certified orthopedic surgeon, rushed to the back of the room, where he examined the young person on the ground. After a few minutes, Barrasso helped the visitor back up and walked out the door of the committee room with him.
The senator returned a few minutes later and the hearing continued on schedule.
