Bob Barker was hospitalized in L.A. after paramedics responded to his Hollywood Hills home. His manager says Bob woke up Monday morning with major back pain. His family decided to call in the professionals to transport him to the hospital. 94-year-old Bob suffered a nasty fall last year that required medical care.
Barker's manager told TMZ that the "Price is Right" host, 94, woke up in the morning with a major flare in back pain, which prompted his family to call the paramedics to take him to the hospital.
The Los Angeles Fire Department arrived at Barker's Hollywood Hills home around 1 p.m., and immediately took him to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, TMZ added. Photos showed the TV legend on a stretcher.
“It was painful and difficult to get him in a private vehicle. We decided it was easier and better for him," the manager explained to People, noting that Barker is "awake and alert."
"He’s resting and going through evaluations."
