Report: Lindsay Lohan Found Unconscious, Taken to Hospital (UPDATED)

Just a week after crashing her car into a truck between filming on her would-be comeback flick Liz & Dick, Lindsay Lohan has reportedly been hospitalized after being found unconscious in her hotel, though her condition is unknown. "ABC7 has learned Lindsay Lohan was taken to hospital after being found unconscious at Ritz-Carlton in Marina del Rey," ABC7 reported via Twitter. A follow-up Tweet from the outlet added: "Attorney tells ABC7 that 'She's fine.'" Developing...

UPDATE: The New York Post has more: "Lohan not hospitalized but paramedics called after entourage couldn't rouse her from sleep," the paper Tweeted.

And yet more from E! Online, who cites sources who say exhaustion and dehydration were to blame for the incident this morning:

"Lindsay has been working a grueling schedule for the last couple of days," Lindsay's rep Steve Honig told E! News. "Last night she worked from 7 p.m. to 8 a.m. She was exhausted and went back to her room to sleep. Producers were apparently concerned and called the fire department and paramedics found her sleeping but determined that she was fine, just extremely exhausted and slightly dehydrated.

"She is on her way home now to rest and will be back on set later today."

He added that no drugs or alcohol were involved in the incident.

And TMZ, chiming in with the details:

We're told Lindsay wasn't feeling well after complaining of exhaustion, she called someone from the Liz and Dick production team early this morning, and the team sent a private doctor to check on her. Before arriving, the doctor called the hotel and asked someone to check on Lindsay. Someone from the hotel went to her door, "checked on her" and determined she was "unresponsive." The hotel then called 911.

Lindsay's rep says it was someone from the production team who called 911.

Paramedics responded, and determined nothing was wrong with Lindsay. They left without transporting her to the hospital.

Well, good. Sounds like a case of overblown media reportage, but the lesson here is this: If people around Lohan are so concerned that heavy sleep might be construed as unresponsiveness — and if Lohan's working herself to the point of exhaustion, given her history — maybe the false alarm fuss should be taken as a warning, to Lohan, her team, and to those watching along at home. Nobody wants to see Lohan go out like Marilyn.

    Oh good grief--she worked 13 hours on a film set, where she probably spent half her time waiting around. If that is cause for "exhaustion," then nurses, doctors, police, fire & rescue, military etc. would be dropping like flies (or I guess, getting "dehydrated") all over the place.

    Just more Lohan b.s.

    Emergency personnel actually do suffer from dehydration, exhaustion, and so on. But they're not famous, so hardly anybody gives enough of a damn about them to report on it.

    Lulz. "Exhaustion".

    Yeah, I was suffering from that last weekend, too. Helluva hangover there for a couple of days.

    And the Amy Winehouse-like countdown begins in earnest for LiLo...
