Media are reporting that beloved “Star Trek” actor Leonard Nimoy is in the hospital after suffering from chest pains last week.
More from the New York Daily News:
The “Star Trek” actor was taken to UCLA Medical Center on Thursday for “severe chest pains,” law enforcement sources told TMZ. Nimoy was taken to the hospital after a 911 call was placed on his behalf.
Reports of Nimoy’s medical scare come a year after the 83-year-old star revealed that he had been diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
“I quit smoking 30 yrs ago. Not soon enough. I have COPD. Grandpa says, quit now!” he announced in a Jan. 2014 tweet.
Prayers and well-wishes are pouring in:
Here’s hoping for a swift recovery!
