Montel Williams is recovering with friends and family by his side after a scary episode during a workout landed him in the hospital.
Montel’s rep, Jonathan Franks, tells The Blast the TV star was doing dumbbell squats at a gym in NYC Wednesday when he suddenly felt extremely ill and needed to return to his room. He made it back but realized he was suffering some sort of medical emergency and called for help.
Luckily, we’re told emergency responders arrived immediately, and the “quick response from the FDNY was critical in this being a non-event.” Williams was transported to the hospital and is resting up while doctors run tests to determine exactly what happened. He has been living with multiple sclerosis for many years, but it’s unclear if this incident was connected to the MS.
Williams expects to be discharged from the hospital in a few days, and plans to discuss the incident in greater detail.
