A mayoral candidate who had been out campaigning all day collapsed during a committee meeting of the Lockport Common Council, and was rushed to Easter Niagara Hospital.

Micheal Pillot fainted during the meeting in City Hall and was carted away by ambulance. After a crash in the back of a busy meeting, Pillot stood up and said he was OK, but paramedics still gave him oxygen and took him to the hospital.

Pillot is planning to run against Second Ward alderman Jack Smith for the Democratic line in this September's primary.
