Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh is resting comfortably in a Hawaii hospital after suffering chest pains while on vacation, his radio program says.
“Rush appreciates your prayers and well wishes and will keep you updated via rushlimbaugh.com and on his radio program,” the program said in a statement late Wednesday night.
Limbaugh was rushed for medical treatment earlier in the day. The statement said “Rush was admitted to and is resting comfortably in a Honolulu hospital today after suffering chest pains.”
Kit Carson, Limbaugh’s chief of staff, told The Associated Press that he had no further information on Limbaugh’s condition.
He said the 58-year-old left for his usual Christmas vacation on Dec. 23 and is due to return to his show on Jan. 4. Carson didn’t have any information on whether that schedule would change.
