COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Just before he was scheduled to testify before a South Carolina Senate committee, SCANA's CEO Kevin Marsh was taken to the hospital, according to SCE&G, but has since been released. 

Marsh was scheduled to testify before the Senate committee that's investigating the failed nuclear reactors on Tuesday. However, after a brief break, another SCANA representative, Jimmy Addison, began testifying instead announcing Marsh was rushed to the emergency room after experiencing pain. 

Following an inquiry, SCE&G tweeted that Marsh was taken by company personnel "to [a] local hospital after experiencing pain" believed to be related to kidney stones. SCE&G later confirmed the diagnosis and said Marsh would be released from the hospital. 

Testimony on the aborted nuclear plant continues Tuesday. Both representatives from SCE&G and Santee Cooper testified on Tuesday. 

After Addison testified, a Santee Cooper representative spoke, who said they got into the project years ago 'for the right reasons,' but eventually became concerned with Westinghouse in 2014.
