June 13, 2018 - 4:20 pm

WASHINGTON (WCBS 880) -- U.S. Rep. Joe Crowley (D-New York) collapsed Wednesday afternoon in Washington, D.C.

Crowley’s spokesman said heat exhaustion was been to blame.

Crowley had appeared at a protest at U.S. Customs and Border Protection against the separation of parents and children. In a speech, he said “babies being ripped from the arms of their mothers” was “psychological torture.”

On Wednesday afternoon, Crowley tweeted: “Thanks for everyone's concern -doing fine now. Wish I could say the same for the children and parents at the border.”

Crowley, 56, represents parts of Queens and the Bronx.
