The Reverend Glen Archer, the spell master who for more than two decades has achieved unpa-ralleled success in The Gleaner's Children's Own Spelling Bee, was rushed to hospital yesterday after suffering from chest pains.
Esther Tyson, principal of Ardenne High School where Archer coaches, said he complained of chest pains yesterday and was taken to St Joseph's Hospital for treatment.
Archer, who also coaches Ardenne's Schools' Challenge Quiz team, was later transferred to the University Hospital of the West Indies (UHWI).
Up to late yesterday, Archer was still undergoing a series of tests at the Accident and Emergency Department at the UHWI.
It was not clear if he would remain hospitalised overnight.
