miracle-working faith healer and televangelist, Benny Hinn, 62, is now
recovering in a hospital after suffering a heart attack after an
overseas trip and his family is asking for prayers.
Hinn’s daughter, Jessica Hinn Koulianos, made the revelation in a message on the Benny Hinn Ministries website late Monday evening.
he (Hinn) returned to California after ministering to crowds of over
100,000 people in Brazil, including over 2,000 pastors and leaders from
all over South America. It was truly a remarkable nation-shaking event.
And while it was a rewarding journey, after he arrived home he suddenly
began battling fatigue and shortness of breath. For those of you who
know my Dad, you know that he never stops; so when he spent over a week
in bed, we knew something was wrong. I flew to California to be with him
and insisted that he see a doctor. On Friday, he consulted with his
local physician and was admitted to the hospital, where he was treated
for lack of oxygen in his cardiovascular system,” wrote Koulianos.
According to the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute Hinn’s symptoms are indicative of a heart attack.
“A heart attack happens when the flow of oxygen-rich blood to a section
of heart muscle suddenly becomes blocked and the heart can’t get
oxygen. If blood flow isn’t restored quickly, the section of heart
muscle begins to die,” the institute website explains.
“Heart attacks are a leading killer of both men and women in the United States,” it adds.
