Former Los Angeles Lakers star Lamar Odom was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel Tuesday evening.

“We called 911, and the 911 told my staff what to do: turn him over on his left side,” Dennis Hof, owner of the Love Ranch in Crystal, NV, told NBC. “There was this terrible foaming stuff coming out of him. He was throwing up, a little bit of blood.”

Hof claims Odom had been taking “a lot” of “herbal viagra” prior to the incident. (RELATED: Lamar Odom  Might Be Addicted To Crack)

Odom is currently still in a coma at Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas. He was transported there by ambulance, since “he was too tall to fit in the helicopter” intended to airlift him there.

The 35-year-old won NBA Championships with the Lakers in 2009 and 2010 and was named the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year in 2011.

Odom was married to reality TV star Khloe Kardashian for four years. They divorced in 2013. (RELATED: Report: Khloe Kardashian to file for divorce from Lamar Odom)

Khloe, sister Kim, mother Kris and Odom’s Lakers teammate Kobe Bryant rushed to Odom’s side after the accident, reports New York Daily News.
