Rev. Smith was hospitalized today after he collapsed while out for a run. Witnesses to the incident say Smith fell to the ground suddenly and then screamed in pain relentlessly for 35 straight minutes until an ambulance arrived. Doctors say Smith is suffering from a hamstrung hamstring, a common injury among runners, although few cases require hospitalization. “Mr. Smith seems to be a bit of a wuss,” said Dr. Hugh Field, “a lot of athletes could just walk off an injury like this. But not Smith.”
