Terrifying scene ahead of the Atlanta Hawks game on Monday night … Bob Rathbun, the team’s play-by-play announcer, suffered a frightening medical emergency while on the air — and needed to be rushed to the hospital.
Thankfully, however, the 68-year-old is now said to be doing better … and is in “stable” condition.
Rathbun was previewing the Hawks’ game against the Thunder for Bally Sports with Dominique Wilkins … when he suddenly appeared to lose consciousness in his chair, and convulse uncontrollably.
WARNING — THE VIDEO IS HARD TO WATCH.
Medical personnel raced to his side to tend to him, before cameras cut away.
According to Bally Sports officials, he was suffering from dehydration … and was taken to a local medical facility. They added he’s now both “stable” and “responsive.”
Lauren Jbara filled in last-minute for Rathbun to call the game — which the Hawks lost, 121-114.
Get well soon, Bob.
