Tracy Morgan was rushed to the hospital after he collapsed yesterday at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, UT. The 30 Rock star reportedly lost consciousness after attending Sunday’s Creative Coalition Spotlight Awards where he was being honored with the Spotlight Initiative Award.
Morgan collapsed after his speech and had to be rushed to the Park City Medical Center. Everyone speculated as to what caused the collapse and TMZ reported that the comedian appeared to be slurring words and intoxicated. A spokesperson for the hospital later stated that no alcohol or drugs were in Morgan’s system and the comedian’s rep later stated that the alcohol reports were false and it was a combination of “exhaustion and altitude.”
A video released by CNN shows Morgan walking the red carpet headed into the event. In it he appears mellow in comparison to his usual animated self, but definitely not drunk or belligerent like originally reported.
Morgan has had issues with his health in the past, most recently in 2010 where he had to miss part of the season of 30 Rock to get a kidney transplant.
