Hospitalised 30 Rock star says altitude made him sick

Comedian and 30 Rock cast member Tracy Morgan says he'll be back at work today after being hospitalised while attending the Sundance Film Festival in Utah.

Morgan's publicist, Lewis Kay, says the actor suffered from exhaustion and altitude when he collapsed Sunday in Park City, where the elevation is 7000 feet.

Morgan posted on Twitter that the high altitude "shook up this kid from Brooklyn".

Kay says hospital officials report no drugs or alcohol were found in Morgan's system.

Morgan attended Sundance in connection with the comedy film Predisposed, one of the 100 films at the festival, in which he plays a drug dealer named Sprinkles.
