Actor Tracy Morgan was rushed to the hospital after collapsing during an award ceremony at the Sundance Film Festival.

Morgan was honored with an award at the Creative Coalition Spotlight Awards in Park City, Utah but was escorted out of the building where he fell unconscious after his speech, according to TMZ.

Though sources reported that the “30 Rock” star appeared intoxicated, Amy Roberts, spokeswoman for Park City Medical Center said that no alcohol or drugs were found in Morgan’s system.

Lewis Kay, Morgan’s rep, issued a statement which offered an explanation.

“From a combination of exhaustion and altitude, Tracy is seeking medical attention. He is with his fiancée and grateful to the Park City Medical Center for their care. Any reports of Tracy consuming alcohol are 100% false.” –Jazmine Gray
