Coughing Fit Hits 200 at Dinner Attended by Reno

September 12, 1993| Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — About 200 journalists at a conference attended by Atty. Gen. Janet Reno left a banquet room coughing in the middle of dinner Saturday night.

Security officials escorted Reno out of the room after the coughing fits broke out at the National Conference of Editorial Writers dinner, although she was not afflicted. No one sought medical attention.

Hotel officials examined air ducts in an effort to find the cause. Later, they moved the journalists back into the room so they could finish their dinner.
