This is so incredibly sad.
Lamar Odom is fighting for his life after being found on Oct. 13 laying face down and unconscious at a Nevada brothel.
The 35-year-old is reportedly in critical condition and is breathing with the help of machines. “What you are hearing about Lamar Odom is true,” a female receptionist at the Love Ranch South said. “Can’t really talk about it further.” It is being reported by TMZ that the 35-year-old was partying hard with the girls at the Dennis Hof‘s Love Ranch South in Pahrump, Nevada ever since he arrived to the brothel by himself on Oct. 10. Lamar was reportedly taking an herbal substitute for Viagra during his time there, and there’s the possibility of other substances in his system as well.
The person who went into his room rolled the 35-year-old over and saw “mucus-like” fluid coming out of his nose and mouth. An ambulance was called and immediately took him to the hospital where doctors intubated him, meaning the 35-year-old couldn’t breathe on his own.
The sheriff’s department has released the following statement:
At approximately 3:15 pm on October 13, 2015, a call came into the Nye County Dispatch Center from Richard Hunter, Media Director for Dennis Hof’s Bunny Ranch, requesting an ambulance for an unresponsive male experiencing a medical emergency at the Love Ranch in Crystal, Nevada, approximately twenty miles north of Pahrump, Nevada 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 pm. Nye County Sheriff’s Office Detectives Cory Fowles and Michael Eisenloffel arrived and conducted an investigation on scene.
After being treated by the physicians, arrangements were made to transport him by Mercy Air helicopter. However, Mr. Odom was unable to be transported by air due to his stature. He was immediately transported by Pahrump Valley Fire and Rescue Ambulance to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas, Nevada for further treatment.
Reportedly, Khloe Kardashian is “hysterical” upon receiving the news. She, Kim Kardashian, and her mom Kris Jenner are all said to have traveled to Vegas to be by his side.
Thoughts and prayers to Lamar and his loved ones during this tough time.
