White House intruder treated at GW Hospital

The man who jumped the fence at the White House on Friday was brought to GW Hospital after the Secret Service apprehended him, the Associated Press reported.

Omar Gonzalez, 42, made it into the White House before officers arrested him behind the doors. He was then taken to GW Hospital after complaining of chest pains, the AP reported.

GW Hospital spokesman Steven Taubenkibel did not immediately return requests for comment.

Friday’s incident marked the second time someone crossed onto the White House grounds this month. A man was arrested Sept. 11 after he jumped the White House fence and made it onto the North Lawn.
