Miss Rhode Island is out of the hospital after collapsing onstage at the Miss America pageant in Atlantic City.

Ivy DePew apparently fainted during an awards presentation Tuesday night.             

Pageant officials have not said what was wrong. But a host told the audience DePew “got a little overheated.”

The second round of preliminary competition will take place Wednesday night.        

In Tuesday night’s preliminary round, Miss Florida Victoria Cowen won the swimsuit competition and Miss Ohio Mackenzie Bart won the talent competition for a ventriloquism routine.
