Woman Rushed to Hospital from Tiger Woods's Home
A person was taken from Tiger Woods's multimillion-dollar Florida home "on advanced life support" after firefighters received a call at 2:36 a.m. Tuesday, reports local station WESH-TV.
Witnesses told the NBC affiliate station, which aired footage of what appeared to be a blond woman receiving oxygen as she was carried on a stretcher, that an ambulance transported the patient to Health Central Hospital.
The station speculated, but could not confirm, that the woman seen in the video was the patient taken from Woods's house, based on the time that the amublance arrived at the hospital in Ocoee, the same facility where Woods was treated after his one-car crash the day after Thanksgiving.
The station further reported that a black Escalade seen leaving the hospital shortly afterward had registration information similar to the Escalade driven by Woods on the night of his crash.
The Orlando Sentinel also reported, based on fire department records, that an ambulance responded to a call at Woods's home. Contacted in Sweden, a spokeswoman for the mother of Tiger Woods's wife, Elin Nordegren, said she had not heard of the incident.
There were also reports on Monday, unconfirmed, that Woods's wife, Elin Nordegren, had moved out of the couple's home into a nearby house.
