"I just wanted to get a little attention," joked George Bush, 67, after his frightening collapse at a state dinner last week in Tokyo (above). The President, who had played tennis earlier in the day, vomited at his seat and slumped to the floor. Prime Minister Kiichi Miyazawa and Dr. Burton Lee, the President's personal physician, rushed to his aid. Dr. Lee, diagnosing gastroenteritis (better known as stomach flu), later prescribed the antinausea drug Tigan—and a good night's sleep. (The President, below, gamely managed a wave as he left with Lee for his suite.)
A composed Barbara Bush, who remained at the dinner, drew a laugh when she told the crowd: "I rarely get to speak for George Bush."
