Democratic Rep. Levin of Michigan fine after fainting

Posted: Updated:

Democratic Congressman Sander Levin of Michigan is being treated for dehydration by the Capitol physician after having a coughing fit and fainting.

His office says the 84-year-old is doing fine and won't require hospitalization.

The incident happened at the Capitol Wednesday after Levin, who has a cold, started coughing and then fainted. But he was able to get up on his own and walk out of the meeting he was attending at the time.

Levin is one of the longest-serving members of the House and is in his 17th term. He is planning to seek re-election.
