Carterton Deputy Mayor John Booth says he is doing fine after surviving a heart attack in his home.

Mr Booth said he felt a "pain going up his elbows" and shortness of breath while lying in bed on Saturday morning.

He said his wife "didn't like the colour" of him and he was admitted to hospital.

Mr Booth described the heart attack as "just one of those things", after further check-ups at Wellington Hospital revealed his heart is healthy for his age.

He said the heart attack was minor but he will be resting up for two weeks.
