It’s being reported that boxer Muhammad Ali “stopped breathing” on Friday night and was hospitalized on Saturday with pneumonia. A source said:
“[Family members] called 911. He was revived by the paramedics and is in ICU with fluid on the lungs. He is on a respirator and IV’s.”
Ali’s daughters Laila and Hana rushed to Phoenix, Arizona to be with their father, who is now in stable condition, but because of his battle with Parkinson’s disease, every hospital visit is a scary one. His 73rd birthday is on January 17th.
A friend recently explained that the boxing legend’s health has been “rapidly declining” this last year, and that he can no longer speak. Reportedly, Ali’s wife Lonnie will give an update on his health soon.
We’re wishing the champ a speedy recovery!
