NEW YORK, (PIX11)- The 88-year old former mayor checked in last night after several of his friends thought he needed medical attention. A spokesman says Koch appeared lethargic and was suffering from swollen ankles. This is the third time the former mayor has been in the hospital since September. Last month he spent time at New York Presbyterian for a respiratory infection.
