Tracy Morgan remains in a Utah hospital after falling unconscious at the Sundance Film Festival, E! News has confirmed.

The 30 Rock star had been attending an awards ceremony before he was rushed to the Park City Medical Center. 

So what happened?

The former Saturday Night Live star was being honored at the Creative Coalition Spotlight Awards and after giving his speech, during which he appeared to be out of sorts, the 43-year-old funnyman was escorted outside, where he collapsed.

An ambulance was dispatched to the scene and Morgan was brought to Park City Medical Center. No drugs or alcohol were found in his system, and Morgan's rep put the incident down to "a combination of exhaustion and altitude."

The comic is a diabetic and received a kidney transplant two years ago.

Morgan's film Predisposed, which also stars Jesse Eisenberg and Melissa Leo, is being screened at the festival.
