CAIRO (WKOW) – Egypt's state media said Hosni Mubarak has suffered a "health crisis" while he was on his way to a Cairo prison hospital after being convicted and sentenced to life in prison.
Mubarak is sentenced to life in prison for failing to stop the killing of protesters during last year's uprising.
State television and the official news agency report that Mubarak, 84, suffered the crisis while riding in the helicopter to Torah prison hospital from the court hearing. Mubarak was convicted of complicity in the killing of some 900 protesters during the uprising that drove him from power.
Nile News, a state-owned channel, said Mubarak suffered a heart attack. However, that could not be immediately confirmed.
