Radio Host In Serious Condition, Officials Say
December 30, 2009
Conservative radio talk host Rush Limbaugh was taken to a Honolulu hospital on Wednesday afternoon with chest pains, officials said.
Paramedics responded to the call at 2:41 p.m. at the Kahala Hotel and Resort, Honolulu television station KITV reported.
Paramedics treated him and took him to Queen’s Medical Center where he is in serious condition. Queens spokeswoman N. Makana Shook said the hospital is unable to comment on the report.
Limbaugh, 58, was seen golfing at Waialae Country Club earlier this week, KITV said. The country club is next to the Kahala hotel.
For guest privacy reasons, hotel spokeswoman Sheila Donnelly Theroux said she was unable to acknowledge that Limbaugh is a guest.
In 2001, Limbaugh received a cochlear implant after he suddenly lost hearing due to autoimmune inner ear disease. Limbaugh underwent treatment in 2003 for an addiction to prescription painkillers, including Lorcet, Norco and hydrocodone.
