Billy Graham Hospitalized

Famed evangelist Billy Graham, weakened by influenza, ended a speech abruptly Tuesday and motioned for a doctor moments after he asked his audience to rededicate their lives to God.

“He was in a weakened condition from the flu he was suffering,” said Larry Ross, Graham’s spokesman.

Graham, 76, was taken to Toronto’s East General Hospital, where he was in good condition Tuesday night despite some bleeding from his bowel, his doctors said in a statement.

Graham was expected to be discharged today, a statement from his doctors said.
