NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Yoko Ono was removed from her Upper West Side home Friday evening for what was initially reported to be a possible stroke — though her publicist was later quoted as saying she was suffering from the flu.
Ono, who turned 83 this month, was taken from her home at the Dakota at 72nd Street and Central Park West, and was rushed to Mount Sinai West Hospital – formerly St. Luke’s Roosevelt, a police source told CBS2’s Jessica Schneider.
Ono was unconscious when she was taken to the hospital at 9:05 p.m., the FDNY said.
In a Daily Mail report published late Friday, Ono publicist Elliot Mintz said Ono had not had a stroke, and was actually suffering from a bout of the flu.
Mintz told the newspaper Ono was hospitalized at the advice of her doctor and will likely be released on Saturday.
It was not clear if Ono was alone at the time she was rushed to the hospital, CBS2’s Tracee Carrasco reported.
