Chest Pains Put Rush Limbaugh In Honolulu Hospital; 'Resting Comfortably'

Conservative radio host and commentator Rush Limbaugh is in a Honolulu hospital "resting comfortably after suffering chest pains," according to a statement posted at his website.

The Honolulu Advertiser says that "Honolulu Emergency Medical Services spokesperson Bryan Cheplic confirmed that paramedics responded to a 2:41 p.m. call ... and that a man of undetermined age was taken to a local hospital in serious condition. ... Limbaugh, 58, was reported to be alert and conscious at the hotel (where he was taken ill). He was expected to spend the night at Queen's (Medical Center).

According to Limbaugh's website, there will be more news about how he's doing during his show today.

Update at 12:10 p.m. ET: Limbaugh's guest host today is Walter E. Williams. We just listened to the start of the show (thanks to WMAL in D.C.) and Williams told listeners that "Rush continues to rest, very comfortably, in the hospital in Honolulu."

"It has not been confirmed that he had a heart attack," Williams added, but doctors should know more after they give Limbaugh a "complete examination today."
