CHICAGO — Former Mayor Richard Daley has been hospitalized in an intensive care unit after feeling ill upon returning to Chicago from a business trip in Arizona.

His spokeswoman Jackie Heard says Daley was feeling disoriented on a Friday evening flight back from a conference he attended as part of his work for the law firm Katten Muchin Rosenman.

Heard says Daley walked off the plane and was met by an ambulance that took him to Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

The 71-year-old Daley remains in the hospital’s intensive care unit Saturday for monitoring and evaluation. His family is with him and visiting the former mayor between tests.

Heard had no other information on his condition.
