Massachusetts Sen. Edward Kennedy was removed from a post-swearing-in ceremony luncheon in National Statuary Hall Tuesday due to what is being called a medical emergency.

Kennedy, who is fighting malignant brain cancer,  experienced a seizure, but is resting comfortably, according to Dr. Edward Aulisi, chairman of neurosurgery at Washington Hospital Center, where Kennedy is hospitalized.

“Senator Edward Kennedy experienced a seizure today while attending a luncheon for President Barack Obama in the U.S. Capitol,” Dr. Aulisi said Tuesday afternoon. “After testing, we believe the incident was brought on by simple fatigue. Senator Kennedy is awake, talking with family and friends, and feeling well. He will remain at the Washington Hospital Center overnight for observation, and will be released in the morning.”
