Tom Brokaw On ER Visit: ‘It was one of those dumb mistakes’

Tom Brokaw made an appearance during NBC Nightly News last night, and talked about his unplanned trip to the hospital Thursday morning.

“I read you made an unscheduled fact-finding tour of a local emergency room,” Brian Williams said to Brokaw.

“I did. It was one of those dumb mistakes,” Brokaw replied. “I got up early, I was in a rush, somehow half a sleeping pill gotten into the little box reserved for the baby aspirins, it all kicked in at exactly the wrong time. It is a cautionary tale, know what you¬†ingest.”
