NEW YORK (AP) _ Former Mayor John V. Lindsay collapsed on a steamy train platform in Grand Central Terminal on Thursday and was hospitalized in stable condition.

The 72-year-old Lindsay, whose health has deteriorated in recent years, apparently suffered heat exhaustion.

″He is in stable condition and is being admitted for further observation,″ said Monica Breckenridge, a spokeswoman at Columbia- Presbyterian Medical Center.

Lindsay has been hospitalized at least three times since 1988, once for heart surgery and another time after collapsing during a lunch.

Lindsay, a former congressman, was mayor from 1966 through 1973.
