Tracy Morgan

The Sundance 911 Call

'He's Lost Consciousness'

1/23/2012 11:14 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Tracy Morgan Sundance 911 Call
TMZ has obtained the 911 call placed moments after Tracy Morgan fell unconscious yesterday at the Sundance Film Festival.

According to the caller -- who identifies Tracy as "a celebrity" on the phone -- the actor had a high fever, and was in possession of antibiotics for an infection in his foot. His breathing was "not normal." The caller says he's not sure if Tracy had been drinking.

TMZ broke the story -- Morgan was rushed to the hospital last night after delivering an acceptance speech at the Creative Coalition Spotlight Awards, after the actor lost consciousness.

Multiple eyewitnesses claim Morgan was slurring his words during the event and appeared extremely intoxicated -- but a rep for the hospital where Morgan was subsequently treated insists ... neither drugs nor alcohol were found in the actor's system upon medical evaluation.

Morgan tweeted moments ago, claiming the high altitude was to blame for his medical emergency.

The "HIGH" altitude caused the blackout? Perhaps it was the HIGH Tracy.

Actually, depending - the altitude does make some people goofy. Lived in Colorado Springs for 5 years when hubs was stationed there, they've had speakers at the Academy and Peterson during graduation go loopy, other sports players from other states... there are some really weird cir***stances, if he was partially ill before or catching something and the oxygen levels in his blood... it's not unheard of.

Is "altitude sickness" code for "drunk off his ass and passed out?"

He always seemed to look bad - had the aura of ill health for some reason. Hope he's ok though....

I guess "lost consciousness" is the politically correct way to say passed out now?

Poor, poor Mindy ...    

The luckiest guy alive. He is ABSOLUTELY the worst cast member in SNL history!!! Was on for YEARS and still finding work. He hasn't done or said ANYTHING funny in his life. Comes off as the angry black guy at all times. Unique? Uh, no. Still I hope that he takes his health seriously before it's too late. Good luck.
