Former Melrose Place star Heather Locklear remains hospitalized in stable condition but is in “no danger,” according to a statement by her family. The 50-year-old actress was rushed to the hospital after her sister called 911 fearing she was in danger.
Emergency 911 personnel received a call from Healther Locklear’s sister shortly after 2PM. According to TMZ.com, Locklear’s sister allegedly told 911 operators she was afraid the actress was in danger after combining a mix of prescription drugs and alcohol.
“Emergency response personnel responded to a medical emergency call at Ms. Locklear’s residence,” Ventura County Sheriff’s Capt. Mike Aranda told People. “Once they arrived, it was determined that Ms. Locklear needed to be transported to the hospital for further medical attention.”
Healther Locklear was transported by ambulance from her home in Westlake Village to the Los Robles Hospital and Medical Center in Thousand Oaks. According to a hospital spokesperson, Locklear arrived conscious and responsive. She is currently in stable condition and may be released later today.
“[Locklear’s] parents wanted everybody to know that she’s doing well, she’s fine, she’s not in any danger, she’s healthy,” hospital spokeswoman Kris Carraway-Bowman said in a press statement. “She is out of harm’s wayâ€¦ she is in no danger.” Locklear’s family is “looking forward to her getting very, very well again and bringing her home,” Carraway-Bowman said.
This is not the first time Heather Locklear has been the cause of a frantic 911 call. In 2008, Locklear’s doctor called 911 in fear that the actress had overdosed on prescription medications. The call was later reported as a false alarm.
A source allegedly told Radar Online that Locklear has been “distraight over her relationship with Jack (Wagner), it is on and off and it has upset her lately.” Locklear and former Melrose Place co-star Wagner broke off their engagement in November.
