Former NBA star Lamar Odom has been rushed to a Las Vegas hospital after he was found unconscious at a brothel, according to People.

The 35-year-old former NBA star is in serious condition at Desert View Hospital, People reports.

An emergency call came from Dennis Hof’s Bunny Ranch, located in Crystal, Nevada, at approximately 3:15 p.m. Tuesday, Nye County Sherif Sharon A. Wehrly told People in a statement. Emergency personnel arrived at 3:34 p.m. and treated Odom at the scene, but initial plans to transport the 6’10” athlete to the hospital via helicopter were abandoned “due to his stature,” Wehrly said. Instead, Odom was transported by ambulance.

Dennis Hof, who owns the brothel, told People that Odom arrived at the Bunny Ranch on Saturday, and that two women saw him go to sleep around 6 a.m. Tuesday. When they returned at 3:30 p.m., they found him unconscious and called 911.

Odom’s ex-wife Khloé Kardashian has been informed of his condition, People reports, and she is expected to fly into Las Vegas Tuesday night, possibly with her sister Kim Kardashian.

Odom and Keeping up with the Kardashians star Khloé wed in 2009 but separated in December 2013 and were officially divorced in July.
