Gary Coleman

Rushed to Hospital

1/6/2010 2:07 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Gary ColemanGary Coleman was taken to the hospital early this morning, TMZ has learned.

We're told Coleman was transported at 8:03 AM from Custom Hotel in Los Angeles where he was staying.

His rep is still trying to confirm what happened -- but people who were with Coleman told the rep there were signs of a seizure.

Coleman was in Los Angeles doing interviews to promote a something called "Midgets vs. Mascots." He did several interviews before being taken to the hospital.

UPDATE -- A friend of Coleman's who was with him this morning tells TMZ that Coleman was sitting on the bed when he went into what the friend said "looked like a seizure." Coleman came around and 911 was called.

Coleman was asked simple questions like "What month is it?" and whether or not he knew the name of anyone in the room -- Coleman was "foggy" and did not know the answers.

It is a miracle that Gary C. has survived this long. With him being a very sickly child and the kidney transplant. I pray that he gets well

Opie and Anthony caused this whole thing. They can't stand black people and they were toying with Gary all morning because he is small and black.

RIP Gary.

His parents betrayed him early on.. he has had a tough life with health issues, money issues.. thus an angry person.

Regardless, I hope he can rest comfortably and get past this...

I've always felt sorry for him, he always seems to be the butt of people's jokes. Poor thing.

HOPE HE'S FEELING A LITTLE BETTER THIS AFTERNOON. BLESS HIS LITTLE HEART. I'M A LITTLE DOWN AFTER READING THIS NEWS.

SURE HOPE THIS HOSPITAL WASN'T SHORT HANDED AND HANDLED HIS HEALTH ISSUES WITH LITTLE OR NO AFTER EFFECTS.

HOPE HE RECOVERS AND GOES ON TO BIGGER AND GREATER THINGS......:D
