E! Online is reporting that drugs were found in Odom’s system and that he suffered an “overdose.” A source told them that Odom is unconscious and on a ventilator after suffering an “ischemic stroke,” which takes place when a blood clot prevents blood flow to the brain.
“So, likely there’s brain damage, but they’re not sure how much,” the source said. “Virtually every drug imaginable was found in his system.”
The Nye County Sheriff's Office has released the following statement regarding Odom.

According to TMZ, Lamar Odom was found unconscious on Tuesday at the Love Ranch South in Pahrump, Nev. It is believed that Odom arrived on Saturday, and he was allegedly seen "taking an herbal substitute for Viagra." When the former NBA star was found, he was rolled over and fluid started coming out of his mouth. At a nearby hospital, Odom underwent intubation, suggesting that he needed help to breathe.
TMZ is reporting that he was "airlifted from the hospital to Las Vegas for more treatment." We will update you with more information when it becomes available.
