Massachusetts senator Edward Kennedy was released from the Washington Hospital on Wednesday morning after suffering a seizure at the inaugural luncheon.

Massachusetts senator Edward Kennedy was released from the Washington Hospital on Wednesday morning after suffering a seizure at the inaugural luncheon.

The 76-year-old stayed at the hospital overnight for observation, according to TheWall Street Journal. Doctors said that Kennedy, who was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor in May 2008, suffered the seizure from fatigue.

Meanwhile, West Virginia senator Robert Byrd, 91, was also removed from the luncheon. The Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday that the Senate's longest-serving member was so overwhelmed by the scene that he asked to be removed by wheelchair. Byrd's frail health lead some reporters to believe that he was also ailing physically.

The event, which ended at about 3 p.m. EST Tuesday, took place at Sanctuary Hall in the U.S. Capitol. (Michelle Garcia, Advocate.com)
