National MP Tau Henare had a heart attack in the early hours of yesterday morning.
He’s recovered sufficiently to write on Facebook:
Well at 2ish this morning I had a wee heart attack. Yip that’s right. freakiest thing in the whole world. anyway, all is good they put a stent into my artery and hey presto all good on the pumping blood score. Rest and Recuperation. Don’t Panic whanau and don’t Jump for Joy either.
Tau went public about developing diabetes earlier this year and has been on a get-fit-lose-weight programme.
