Tracy Morgan

Wheelchair-Bound

Tracy Morgan in a wheelchairTracy Morgan doesn't mix well with mountains -- because for the second time in four months, the comedian fell seriously ill in the Rockies ... and required the use of a wheelchair to make his flight home.

According to reports, Tracy was rushed to a hospital in Denver on Saturday for flu-like symptoms and dehydration. He was treated for several hours and released.

The above pics were snapped yesterday at Denver International Airport -- shortly before the "30 Rock" star flew back to New York.

Tracy was supposed to perform at a comedy show in town Saturday night -- but his act was canceled due to the medical emergency.

Tracy was previously hospitalized in January after falling unconscious at the Sundance Film Festival. He later cited Utah's altitude as a reason for his sickness.

Just what I'd want to see on my flight. Someone so sick from a contagious disease that he has to use a wheelchair to get on the airplane.

One drink = Two in the Rockies. That altitude will kill you. Personally, the worst hangover in my life in Denver.

I live in Colorado (at a higher elevation than Denver) and this happens ALL the time! Altitude sickness is real - it's not contagious and doesn't have anything to do with his diabetes. If he is drinking that is just going to make it much worse.

Am I reading this article correctly???? He has the flu, and he gets on an airplane, where the environment is sealed, so everyone breathes the same air. I hope he flew home on a private jet, and didn't subject hundreds of other people to his illness.

Sounds like sickle cell or another chronic anemia plus altitude, at a minimum. Add in possible alcohol or drugs, and voila! Misery.

He probably saw one of his "comedy" routines.
