Apparently, Tracy Morgan and high altitudes don’t mix.

Once again, the 30 Rock star became seriously ill in the Rockies, later requiring a wheelchair to board a plane for home.

According to TMZ, Morgan was taken to a Denver hospital exhibiting “flu-like symptoms and dehydration.” After he was treated for several hours, the comedian was released. Morgan was scheduled to perform at a comedy show on Saturday night until his set was canceled due to the medical emergency. This past January Morgan, after falling unconscious at the Sundance Film Festival, was hospitalized. Utah's altitude was cited as a reason for his illness. is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
