PAHRUMP, Nev. — Former NBA player Lamar Odom has been hospitalized after being found unconscious at a Nevada brothel, according to Nye County (Nev.) Sheriff Sharon Wehrly.
The 2011 NBA Sixth Man of the Year award winner arrived at Dennis Hof’s Love Ranch South in Pahrump, Nev., on Saturday. Sources told TMZ Odom was partying with the girls for days.
On Tuesday afternoon, someone went to Odom’s room and found him unconscious with fluid streaming out of his mouth, according to TMZ.
Wehrly said an ambulance from Pahrump Valley Fire and Rescue arrived at the ranch at 3:34 p.m. and transported Odom to Desert View Hospital.
After being treated by physicians, arrangements were made to transport Odom by air, Wehrly said. However, Odom was unable to be transported by air due to his stature.
Odom was transported by a Pahrump Valley Fire and Rescue ambulance to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas for further treatment, Wehrly said.
There is no word on Odom’s current condition.
