Local media reported that the rapper suffered a seizure in the air while traveling from Milwaukee to California, forcing the diversion of his plane to Omaha. The rapper will remain in a local hospital for at least one night.
The officials of Omaha fire department entered the plane at approximately 3 p.m. local time, though the rapper initially refused any medical treatment. The plane then took off but it soon told officials that the rapper continued to have medical issues.
KETV reported that the plane circled back and returned to the airport. Carter was rushed to the emergency room of CHI Health Creighton University Medical Center.
It may be recalled that in 2012, Carter was hospitalized after suffering a seizure. "Lil Wayne was successfully released from the hospital after being treated for a severe migraine and dehydration," his rep said at the time.
"He is at home on doctor-mandated rest and will return to work soon."
