Cincinnati Vice Mayor having heart surgery Friday morning

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - David Crowley, the Vice Mayor of Cincinnati, will undergo bypass heart surgery Friday morning, according to the Mayor's office.

Crowley was admitted to a local hospital after he told doctors he was having chest pains. Doctors determined that he would need surgery, but did not have a heart attack.

The Vice Mayor has canceled  his appointments for the next few weeks.

"At this time, I may ask that we keep the Vice Mayor and his family in out thoughts and prayers," said Mayor Mark Mallory. "I know that my friend David will dedicate himself to his recovery with the same strength and energy that he gives everyday serving the citizens of Cincinnati."
