Former NBA star Lamar Odom has been rushed to a Las Vegas hospital in serious condition after being found unresponsive at a brothel in Nevada, officials said on Tuesday.
Nye County Sheriff Sharon Wehrly said emergency services were called to the Love Ranch in Crystal at 3:34 p.m. PT for an unresponsive male experiencing a medical emergency. The call to request an ambulance was made by Richard Hunter, the media director for Dennis Hof’s Bunny Ranch.
The Love Ranch brothel is about 20 miles north of Pahrump in Nye County.
“An ambulance from Pahrump Valley Fire and Rescue Service arrived at 3:34 pm and the patient, identified as Lamar Odom, was stabilized and transported to Desert View Hospital, arriving at 4:16 p.m.,” Wehrly said. “Nye County Sheriff’s Office Detectives Cory Fowles and Michael Eisenloffel arrived and conducted an investigation on scene.”
After being treated by physicians, arrangements were made for a transport by Mercy Air, but doctors determined that Odom was unable to be airlifted due to his stature. Instead, he was rushed to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas for further treatment.
Other details about Odom’s condition were not immediately known.
Odom, the ex-husband of Khloe Kardashian, has reportedly had a prior history with drug and alcohol abuse, which was documented on the reality show “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” in 2013.
