Deluise Recovering After Health Scare
CANNONBALL RUN star DOM DeLUISE is recovering after reportedly collapsing at his home in California. The rotund funnyman, who was BURT REYNOLDS' sidekick in the Cannonball Run films, was taken to hospital on 1 July (06) after family members found him passed out on the floor. According to US tabloid reports, DeLuise remained unconscious hours after he was admitted to St John's Medical Center in Santa Monica, California. After a series of heart tests and round-the-clock observation, the 72-year-old actor was allowed to go home three days later. According to an insider, "He knows something serious happened, but the doctors haven't made any diagnosis yet. "He'd been complaining that he was really tired... At the time no one thought it was anything serious."
