Bird in critical condition

Sunnyside Parks and Recreation Commission member Ellen Bird is in critical condition at Yakima Regional Hospital.

Bird suffered a massive stroke after she was taken from the chambers at Monday night's Sunnyside City Council meeting.

Bird was speaking before the Council on a plan the city has concerning charges with water meters at mobile home parks.

After finishing her comments, Bird went to leave the podium but became dizzy. Bird was transported to Sunnyside Community Hospital, but along the way her condition worsened.

She was later transferred to Yakima, where she remains in critical condition as of this morning (Tuesday), according to a hospital spokesman.
