VIDEO REPORTJohn McAfee taken to hospital
He initially refused to go to a hospital, saying he had relied on Chinese herbal medicine after suffering a heart attack in 1993.
“Last night I had a little bit of pain, but I am fine this morning,” McAfee told the Associated Press on Thursday. “I don’t like western medicine… if the people around me are kind and compassionate, that’s all that matters in life. The people of Guatemala are very kind people, so I have no complaints.”
A government doctor said McAfee’s heart rhythm and blood pressure were normal and that he had not suffered a heart attack during the night.
