Obama: Bryson incident appears health related

Monday - 6/11/2012, 7:50pm  ET

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama says he's keeping track of Commerce Secretary John Bryson's condition after the Obama cabinet member was involved in three minor accidents and was found unconscious in a car in San Gabriel, Calif.

Government officials say Bryson suffered a seizure. Obama tells television station KTIV in Sioux City, Iowa, that the incident appears to be health related and that he hopes Bryson is "doing all right."

Obama found out Monday about the Saturday episode and said he had not spoken to Bryson.

He said he was still trying to establish what happened during the episode.

He added that he wanted to make sure Bryson got the best care. He said: "We'll be able to make a determination from there. "
