    Now it is reported that Sen Robert Byrd needed medical assistance. After medics entered the room for Byrd, Kennedy went into severe convulsions.

    I think Stephanopoulis got the sequence wrong.

    I see the news footage and Kennedy appears conscious as he was loaded in the ambulance to a hospital.

    CNN is retracting the report about Byrd. There may have been some initial confusion about who was down.

    It seems now that Stephanopoulis was correct. That Byrd left after seeing Kennedy stricken. Byrd is apparently not suffering from a medical condition.
