The Maybach Music Group mogul is currently hooked up to an extra corporeal membrane oxygenation machine, also known as extra corporeal life support at a Miami hospital’s cardio unit, according to TMZ.
Also known as ECMO, the machine has taken over the function of the 42-year-old rapper’s heart and lungs, following a possible heart attack.
Rick Ross was found unresponsive and “slobbing at the mouth” at approximately 3:30 a.m. Emergency responders and law enforcement officials turned up at his home to provide aid before he was taken to a local hospital. At the time, it was reported that he had been hospitalized for possible pneumonia, but his complications were deemed serious due to his history with seizures.
