Larry King Suffered Heart Attack, Went Into Cardiac Arrest

Legendary talk show host Larry King had a recent health scare late last week. According to reports, he suffered a heart attack and went into cardiac arrest.

According to TMZ, on April 25th, 85-year-old Larry King had been complaining of having difficulty breathing for the last several months and was ironically scheduled to check into the hospital for an angiogram just days before his heart attack occurred.

The heart attack reportedly happened while he was at home actually preparing to go to the hospital. He was then transported to the hospital by ambulance where doctors quickly performed an angioplasty. Doctors opened up an artery in his heart that had collapsed and inserted several stents to repair it.

This isn’t the first time King has suffered a heart attack, as the talk show host has had two others dating back to the past 30 years. After his most recent heart surgery he was placed in the cardiac intensive care unit and expected to be released on April 29th.

We want to wish Larry King a speedy recovery.
