We have new developments on the health scare for former president Bill Clinton, who is at a New York hospital tonight after suffering "chest discomfort".

Just moments ago, a new conference was held at Columbia campus of New York Presbyterian Hospital, where six years ago Clinton had quadruple bypass surgery.

Clinton's chief cardiologist told reporters one of the bypass graphs was completely blocked, which led them to place two stents in one of his coronary arteries. The doctor says Clinton's prognosis is "excellent."

The procedure comes just days after Clinton returned from Haiti, where he is a special U.N. envoy.

We'll have all the angles with 360 M.D. Sanjay Gupta and some of Clinton's political allies.

We also continue to follow the money trail in Haiti. CNN's Abbie Boudreau is tracing the path of corruption. Millions of dollars were allegedly looted by the deposed president and his wife, who is now his ex-wife.

We're talking about Jean Claude Dulvaier, nicknamed "Baby Doc" and Michelle Bennett. Their wedding was so lavish it earned a place in the Guinness Book of World Records. They spent $3 million tying the knot, while most Haitians live on less than one dollar a day.

Two attorneys have been hired to track how the couple spent Haiti's cash. See what they discovered tonight on the program.

We also have an update on five-year-old Kenzy Charles, who has been reunited with is father on the USS Comfort. His family thought he died in the quake. Hear what Kenzy plans to tell his mom when he finally sees her.

Join us for these stories and much more at 10 p.m. ET.

    I hope Bill Clinton will recover quickly-it's a scary situation. At first I wondered if in fact there was too much on his plate both literally & figuratively. It sounds like he has been doing everything possible since 2004. Still, he probably is just one of those people who simply doesn't have an off switch, very much like some other folks we could mention 🙂

    stealing children from another country is against the law, stealing for profit is sinful. permission to take the children from hati, should have been legal. these children were crying, being pulled away from their families.missionaries?? i thought they were supposed to be abiding by Gods words.

    I cannot imagine spending 3 million dollars on a wedding especially when those in your country have so little. I wonder if there is any of the money left from what these people stole from the people of Haiti. Some people are just unbelievable. Looking forward to hearing more on this story plus more details on Bill Clinton.
