Paramedics called after Lindsay Lohan found unconscious in hotel room
15 June 2012

Paramedics were called to Lindsay Lohan’s room at the Ritz-Carlton in Marina del Rey this morning (15 June) when an assistant could not rouse the actress from her sleep.

Lohan, filming the Lifetime movie Liz & Dick in the area, was apparently just exhausted and a little dehydrated but otherwise fine. She did not require hospitalization, according to her spokesman Steve Honig.

Honig explains to E! News: ‘Lindsay has been working a grueling schedule for the last couple of days. 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.’

Honig said Lohan was going home to rest and would be returning to the set later in the day.

Lohan is portraying screen legend Elizabeth Taylor in the film which is being looked at by many as the fallen star’s opportunity to re-establish herself as an actress after her career was derailed by drugs and legal problems.

But this incident is not the first sign of trouble in recent days. Last week, Lohan crashed a rented Porsche into the back of a dump truck while driving along Pacific Coast Highway.

The Porsche was severely damaged but Lohan and the assistant riding with her were not injured.
