County Executive Larry Walsh Rushed to Hospital

Will County Executive Larry Walsh suffered a severe nosebleed while in his office but is now doing OK, said a staffer.

Will County Executive Larry Walsh suffered a severe nosebleed Wednesday and was taken from his office to the hospital.

"He's fine. We probably overreacted," said Anastasia Tuskey, the county's communications director.

Walsh couldn't stanch the flow of blood, said Tuskey, who noted the county executive has high blood pressure, which contributed to his concerns.

Fire department paramedics were called down to the county building and they decided Walsh should go to the hospital.

He was taken to Provena St. Joseph Medical Center but was expected to be released Wednesday evening, Tuskey said.

"We just had trouble getting the nosebleed to stop," she said. "Better safe than sorry."
