Doctor: Benny Hinn Did Not Have a Heart Attack
Benny Hinn's doctor is refuting reports that the 62-year-old evangelist suffered a heart attack last week.
CBN News recently reported that the evangelist had been admitted to the hospital for heart problems March 20 after an outreach in Brazil.
Hinn's oldest daughter, Jessica Hinn-Koulianos, said in a statement that he was battling fatigue and having a hard time breathing.
Now Charisma Magazine reports they've spoken with Hinn and his doctor and confirmed that he did not have a heart attack, saying tests showed his heart was "strong and free of plaque."
However, doctors did have to shock his heart to reset the rhythm. The procedure was successful.
"So today's a good day. We turned a corner and even the doctor said we're out of the critical stage now," Koulianos told Charisma.
"They're going to send him home to rest. Today was a good day. I told him God answered all our prayers," she said.
In a letter Hinn wrote from the medical center, he told supporters, "I'm feeling stronger every day, and I expect to be released very soon."
Hinn has been in international ministry for 40 years. He has been a guest on CBN's flagship program The 700 Club.
