UPDATE: Tracy Morgan Released From Hospital After Sundance Collapse

After a surprising collapse during an award ceremony last night at the Sundance film festival, Tracy Morgan’s health issues appeared far from over. Lewis Kay, Morgan’s publicist, was quick to rule out drugs and alcohol maintains upon his release this morning that “exhaustion and altitude” were to blame.

The Observer can attest that Park City’s 7000 ft. elevation isn’t easy on the capillaries. Eyewitness reports labeled the behavior leading up to the collapse of the 43-year-old diabetic as anything but normal, so it’s possible the cause was being too high (in the mountains). Anyway, we’re glad to hear he’s out.
