CORPUS CHRISTI - City council member Priscilla Leal has undergone surgery after suffering a severe stroke.
Leal, 67, was transported by Halo Flight to Valley Baptist Medical Center in Harlingen on Friday.
A family spokesman tells KRIS 6 News the surgery stopped the bleeding in Mrs. Leal's brain. We're also told that how she does in the 48 to 72 hours will be critical to her recovery.
Mayor Nelda Martinez is asking the community to pray for Mrs. Leal and her family.
