CHICAGO (CBS) — Police Supt. Garry McCarthy checked himself into a hospital on Thursday for treatment of blocked arteries.
Police Department spokesman Adam Collins said McCarthy drove himself to the hospital Thursday morning. Collins would only say the superintendent “underwent a common procedure to address blockage in his arteries.”
The Sun-Times reported McCarthy underwent an angioplasty procedure for a 100 percent blockage in one artery and 80 percent in another.
“He did the right actions, and he’s going to be back to work soon,” McCarthy’s adult daughter, Kyla, told CBS 2’s Mike Parker on her way out of Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where the superintendent was believed to be staying. “We want him to have rest and privacy.”
