Tracy Morgan

Before 911 Emergency --

Signs of Illness

1/23/2012 8:12 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Before Tracy Morgan fell unconscious at a Sundance award event last night, the actor hit the red carpet with the co-producers of his new film "Predisposed" -- but something wasn't right.

Tracy looked in good spirits on his way into the Creative Coalition Spotlight Awards -- smiling, chatting -- but for some reason, one of his producers felt the need to constantly reassure the actor under his breath ... saying things like, "I'm right here" ... "We got you."

It's unclear from the footage what was bothering Tracy.

TMZ broke the story ... Tracy fell unconscious later in the evening after delivering a near-incoherent award acceptance speech. He was subsequently rushed to a nearby hospital in an ambulance.

A spokeswoman for Park City Medical Center -- where Tracy is being treated -- claims neither drugs nor alcohol were found in Tracy's system upon medical evaluation.

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."

Sounds like a diabetic issue along with some complications. Hope he can stablize, manage stress, medications and diet and feel better soon.

I think Tracy Morgan has deep, deep, emotional problems..I think he is a walking time bomb..he is a great actor but I sense a person who have big time, maybe even hate problems..

Altitude could do that, absolutely. I live in the high country and when I first moved up here I felt dizzy and ill. It was pretty awful, actually. It takes 6 months for your blood cells to fully adapt. You also dehydrate very quickly. People are often blindsided by it. Even living at 8,000 feet, I still feel a bit weird and wobbly when I go up to 12,000+ feet.
