The latest report I've seen via Variety. Remains unconscious/critical
Lamar Odom has been hospitalized after being found unconscious at a Nevada brothel, the Nye County Sheriff’s Office confirmed in a statement.
His condition remains “critical” according to an E! report.
The former NBA player and star of E!’s “Khloe and Lamar” reality series was found unconscious at the Love Ranch South on Tuesday morning in Crystal, Nev. This was after multiple days of partying, reports TMZ, which first broke the news.
Odom was apparently intubated in an ambulance, an indication that he was not able to breathe on his own. He was stabilized and transported to Desert View Hospital, arriving at about 4:16 p.m. Authorities conducted an investigation of the scene.
Arrangements were made for Odom to be airlifted to a Las Vegas hospital for further treatment. However, because of his stature (Odom is 6 feet 10 inches tall), he was unable to be airlifted, and was transported by the Pahrump Valley Fire and Rescue Ambulance to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas.
Brothel staff immediately called 911 after finding him unconscious, according to E! News, and Odom was put on his side when he began spitting up liquid. It is said that he had taken herbal Viagra, and ordered a bottle of cognac for the room, a third of which was still left by Tuesday, according to the LA Times.
Odom has reportedly not yet regained consciousness. Dennis Hof, the owner of the brothel, told KNX that they’re “very concerned” about him.
