Prayers to our guy Rick Ross.
Rick Ross is hooked up to a life support machine following a health scare that left him hospitalized, TMZ reports.
A source told the website that the machine had taken over his heart and lung functions. Doctors are reportedly using an ECMO — extracorporeal membrane oxygenation — machine on Ross, which oxygenates the blood outside the body and then returns it to the body.
TMZ claims that Ross is being treated in the cardiac unit, possibly indicating that he suffered a heart attack. The website first reported that Ross was being treated for pneumonia at a local hospital, although an unidentified family member denied that Ross was hospitalized.
The Davie Police Department confirmed that emergency officials were called to Ross’ house in Davie, Florida, on Thursday, March 1, around 3:30 a.m. when the rapper was found unresponsive and breathing heavily. The person who called 911 attempted to wake Ross and saw that he was “slobbing out the mouth,” according to police.
