    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     CBarrettTV, a filmmaker, says he thought comedian Tracy Morgan was injured when he saw him doing the red carpet at the Creative Coalition Spotlight Awards at the Sundance Film Festival on Sunday night. 'It looked like he was limping on the way into the venue ... He was being held up by multiple people. I thought he had a sprained ankle initially,' he says. About an hour later, Morgan passed out following his acceptance speech. According to news reports, he was treated at a Utah hospital from symptoms related to exhaustion and altitude.

    Exclusive video: 30 Rock actor Tracy Morgan showed major signs of sickness as soon as he arrived to walk the red carpet to promote his film Predisposed and he was being honored at the Creative Coalition Spotlight Awards at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. Tracy Morgan said, "This is crazy" before he started to walk the red carpet. The co-directors of Tracy's film had to hold him up so he would not collapse on the red carpet.


    Tracy Morgan's publicist Lewis Kay, said he was sick “from a combination of exhaustion and altitude. Tracy is seeking medical attention. He is with his fiancé and is grateful to the Park City Medical Center for their care. Any reports of Tracy consuming alcohol are 100% false.”
