Former The Price Is Right star Bob Barker has, unfortunately, suffered another health scare. It was confirmed to The National ENQUIRER by a PIO LAFD spokesperson on Thursday, January 24, that there was a call in to the 95-year-old’s Hollywood Hills house on January 12.
The 95-year-old slipped and fell before the ambulance was contacted. “We were summoned at 12:42 p.m. to go to that address for an unspecified medical aid request. There was no ambulance transport from that location,” the spokesperson said.
This incident is among many for the game show legend. In mid-November, he was hospitalized for severe back pain. At the time, his manager revealed to ET that he “was taken by ambulance from his home to Cedars Sinai Hospital in LA for back pain on Sunday afternoon.” He shared that Barker was “awake, alert and improving, but he’s up and down.”
Before that, in late October, he was again hospitalized after experiencing an “increased level of pain” from a non-emergency back injury at his home.
And that’s not all. In the summer of 2017, he fell and hit his head, which resulted in another hospital visit. “He hit the back of his head and decided it would be wise to go to the ER and get checked out,” his rep told ET at the time. “He was in and out [of the hospital], spent maybe a couple of hours there.”
Bob has had countless health issues over the past few decades, including a 1991 minor stroke, a 2002 stroke and hospitalization, two surgeries, one for his prostate and one for a blockage in his carotid artery, and skin cancer.
