According to TMZ, the rapper was "found unresponsive" with the 911 caller mentioning he was "slobbing from the mouth" and "nodding his head." He was reportedly rushed by ambulance to a hospital in the area to be treated for respiratory issues with the distress and heavy breathing possibly being pneumonia-related.
In a follow-up report, TMZ added that Ross is currently hooked up to a machine that's taking over the function of his heart and lungs during his stay in the cardiac unit—all indicating the 42-year-old may have suffered a heart attack. The report concludes saying, "It's essentially a form of life support and a clear sign of how dire Rick's situation is right now."
Ross has a long history of suffering from seizures which he chalked up to exhaustion and lack of sleep. "It bore down to extreme exhaustion," he told Fuse in a 2012 interview after suffering two seizures in 2011. "I was getting two hours [of sleep] a night for the last few years…I never had a vacation because I just loved doing what I was doing."
