Muhammad Ali Hospital – Boxing legend Muhammad Ali had been placed in the hospital after slipping out of consciousness at his Phoenix-area home.
In a sign the 69-year-old sports icon is nearing the final round in his three decade bout with crippling Parkinson’s disease, multiple sources have revealed the champ was rushed from his wife Yolanda’s home in Paradise Valley, Arizona, to a Hospital, the Scottsdale Healthcare Osborn Medical Center on November 19.
Paramedics and police have confirmed a 911 call was placed around 6.30 p.m. from a woman at the Ali estate.
She stated an elderly male, who Star has independently confirmed was Muhammad Ali, was unconscious.
“The victim started to pass out in the car and when they got him into the house he fell unconscious,” Alan Laitsich, a spokesperson for Paradise Valley Police, told Star.
“The 911 tape was filled with details of prescriptions and medical details about the victim who was suffering from an ongoing medical condition. The police department transferred the call to the Fire Unit who sent paramedics,” Laitsich added.
The Paradise Valley Fire Department told Star that by the time it arrived, an independent company had already transported the patient from the property to a hospital. He has since recovered, however, as it’s understood the champ spent the Thanksgiving weekend in Las Vegas with family.
“He has many medical specialists in Phoenix in his life, some that are renowned doctors in Parkinson’s and other fields that have even become close friends with him and the family. So for the family to call 911 for help — they must have really been scared,” a source close to the boxer told Star.
