An ambulance took Ames Mayor Ann Campbell to the hospital Tuesday morning after she suffered a heart attack.

Officials say she underwent an angioplasty procedure to address an arterial blockage.

“We are grateful to all the people who stepped in to assist Ann during this crisis,” Hamilton added.

Campbell remains in critical condition at Mary Greeley Medical Center.
