Former NYC mayor hospitalized for pneumonia

Former mayor David Dinkins is being treated for pneumonia at a New York City hospital.



A spokeswoman for the 88-year-old Dinkins said Friday that he was at New York Presbyterian Hospital being treated for a lung infection.



Spokeswoman Lynda Hamilton says Dinkins is resting and "is going to be fine."



There was no word on when he might be released.



Dinkins was treated for pneumonia at the same hospital in 2013.
