Harold Camping, the 89-year old Family Radio minister who inaccurately predicted the end of the world on May 21 20011, has suffered a stroke.
Camping, the 89-year-old head of the Oakland-based evangelical media company, suffered a stroke on Thursday night after a radio broadcast and was taken to a local hospital, according to a message posted on a Family Radio-oriented Yahoo group by Charlie Menut, station manager of Family Radio affiliate WFME.
A neighbor of Camping told the Oakland Tribune that the Alameda minister was taken by ambulance from his house Thursday night.
The unnamed neighbor said she had spoken with Camping’s wife Shirley on Friday and was told the radio evangelist is doing “OK,” although his speech is “a little bit slurred.”Source: www.cbsnews.com
An update on his condition is expected to be released by Family Radio today.
