WOONSOCKET, R.I. (WPRI) — Woonsocket Mayor Lisa Baldelli-Hunt is being checked out after she collapsed during a news conference at City Hall.

Public Works Director Steve D’Agostino told 12 News the mayor was speaking at an event to commemorate Donate Life Month when she became lightheaded and fainted.

Baldelli-Hunt was taken to Landmark Medical Center where she conscious and undergoing testing, according to D’Agostino.

It’s unclear at this time what caused her to collapse. D’Agostino said she was in a sleepy state and wasn’t talking much. While she will be staying at the hospital overnight, D’Agostino said she’s in good spirits.

Per the city charter, City Council President Christopher Beauchamp will act as mayor in the interim. D’Agostino assured everything will continue to run smoothly and it’s “business as usual.”

Beauchamp tells 12 News he visited Baldelli-Hunt in the hospital and said she was “very much coherent” and joking around.

“This mayor works 24/7 for the city,” he said. “I’ve known her for many years. She overworks herself and that may be part of the problem here … I don’t know exactly what caused it, but I think that played a part.”

Beauchamp remains hopeful that she will receive a clean bill of health and return to work on Monday.
