Former Tyler Executive Has Successful Bypass Surgery

A successful by-pass surgery this morning for Frank Melton.

The former owner of KLTV, and current Jackson, Mississippi mayor, was operated on at Mother Francis Hospital Thursday.

Doctors removed two arteries from his chest and a vein from his leg, using them to detour blockages in Melton's heart.

The surgery lasted six hours and Melton is said to be resting comfortably.
