U.S. Senator EDWARD KENNEDY has been hospitalised after suffering a seizure during an inauguration luncheon for new U.S. President Barack Obama.
Paramedics were called to Washington D.C.'s Statuary Hall at 2.35 pm (EST) after 75-year-old Kennedy collapsed during the meal that followed Obama's inauguration as the 44th U.S. President.
Just minutes later the new President began a short speech to the 200 luncheon guests in attendance, and paid tribute to the Democrat Senator, whose brother was 35th President John F. Kennedy.
Obama said, "He was there when the voting rights act passed. I would be lying to you if I did not say that right now a part of me is with him.
"I think that's true for all of us. This is a joyous time and it's a sobering time. My prayers are with him and his family."
In May (08) Kennedy was diagnosed with brain cancer. He underwent surgery and has since returned to his seat in Senate.
