The Nye County Sheriff’s Office said in a press release that a call from Hof's ranch came into the dispatch center at 3:15 p.m., requesting an ambulance for an unresponsive male. An ambulance arrived at 3:34 p.m., and responders stabilized Odom and took him to Desert View Hospital.

The Sheriff's Office noted that arrangements were made to transfer the NBA player to another hospital via helicopter, but that the plan was scrapped because that mode of transport was not possible "due to his stature." Instead, he was immediately transported by ambulance to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas for further treatment.
