The friends and loved ones of the 60 Minutes reporter suffered another tragedy today.
Andy Rooney's former roommate, Bob Ruthman, went into cardiac arrest while he was attending Rooney's memorial luncheon. Ruthman and Rooney both attended Colgate University in the 1940s, and have remained friends for over 60 years.
Parademics rushed to the Century Club in New York and found a wheelchair bound Ruthman in the bathroom. Although he was initially thought to have died, new reports reveal that he was revived, and is currently in intensive care at a New York Hospital.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to him, as well as his family, during this difficult time.
Get well soon
