Paramedics, Ambulance Called To Tiger’s Home

UPDATE: NBC-TV Orlando affiliate WESH has identified the woman being treated as Elin Nordegren’s mother Barbro Holmberg.

Holmberg was admitted to the hospital with stomach pains and was listed in stable condition, Health Central Director of Marketing Dan Yates said.

“She is currently undergoing an evaluation,” Yates said.

Fox News had previously reported that Holmberg had already been released from the hospital.

Early this morning a middle-aged woman staying at Tiger Woods‘ estate was attended to by paramedics and eventually rushed to the same hospital where Woods was treated after his Thanksgiving night car accident.

The patient, according the multiple reports, initially refused to be taken to the hospital but was later listed as an “advanced life support” patient of Orange County (FL) Fire Rescue paramedics. Advanced life support does not indicate her condition, and she was later released from the hospital.


A young blonde woman was later seen in an Escalade at the hospital, with the vehicle registered to Woods.

The patient may have been Barbro Holmberg, the mother of Woods’ wife Elin Nordegren. Holmberg was reported to have arrived at the Woods’ home last Friday after traveling from her native Sweden.

Woods was not reported to have been seen in the Escalade at the hospital, though the driver was probably his wife Nordgren.

UPDATE: The NATIONAL ENQUIRER reports Woods was at the hospital: “Forty-five minutes later, Tiger entered the hospital, sources say.”
