Reporter 'Live Tweets' His Heart Attack

Some people are just addicted to the technology. Honestly, if you're having a heart attack, would you be eagerly updating your status on Twitter?
White House corespondent Tommy Christopher with may have made Social Network history as being the first person ever to update his or her Twitter page while having a heart attack. This claim is unverified and likely inaccurate, but nonetheless, it takes a courageous reporter to inform the public even in personal trying times.

Approximately at 6pm on Sunday afternoon Christopher wrote, “I gotta be me. Livetweeting my heart attack. Beat that!” Presumably a few minutes later the paramedics arrived to tell Christopher he will be stable after his crisis.

An hour later Christopher joked about needing to own a cardiac cat, referencing a viral video in which a cat is trying to revive his dead feline friend. He also updated his followers about the pain he was feeling, “even after the morphine.”
He's apparently survived and will need more surgery. I'm not sure how old Christopher is but he may want to concern himself more with his diet rather that Twitter updates.
