Amy Roberts, a spokeswoman for Park City Medical Center, tells TMZ no drugs or alcohol were found in Tracy's system upon medical evaluation.

Morgan's rep, Lewis Kay, also released a statement saying, "From a combination of exhaustion and altitude, Tracy is seeking medical attention."

Kay adds, "He is with his fiancée and grateful to the Park City Medical Center for their care. Any reports of Tracy consuming alcohol are 100% false."

9:50 AM PT: Tracy just tweeted, claiming the high altitude was responsible for his 911 emergency last night -- "Superman ran into a little kryptonite. The high altitude in Utah shook up this kid from Brooklyn."

Of course, I hope he recovers from this. I just don't get this guy's "talent"--how did he become so famous and for what???? Weakest link at 30 Rock.

Maybe he had a problem with Diabetes. Anyone on insulin and not following his diet and medication exactly as his Doctor told him could go into diabetic shock.

Hope the guy is OK.

I've heard that he is a Diabetic! Therefore, he shouldn't be drinking in the first place. Don't care much for his comedy/acting...Regardless, I hope he will be okay.

Well...if he was drunk, shame on him. He was being honored for God's sake. Only an alcoholic could do a thing like that.
