Day was placed on a stretcher and rushed to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in an ambulance. He suffered a seizure before he was taken to the emergency room, sources told ESPN. Day slipped into a coma at some point during his time at the hospital and placed on a breathing tube. However, reports are unclear if doctors placed him in a medically induced coma to help with any swelling on the brain.
