What May Have Caused Al Roker’s Health Emergency Proves Something We All Knew..

The Roker family has not had a great couple of weeks.

If you were not aware, Al Roker has been incredibly sick battling blood clots, but thankfully he has seemed to recover.

That is until the day after Thanksgiving.

On Black Friday, Al needed to be rushed to the hospital in an ambulance.

As Al was being whisked away, Al’s wife attempted to get into her Tesla to follow behind the ambulance, but the car would not open.

The car was malfunctioning and she was locked out.

In an understandable panic, Mrs. Roker attempted to smash the window to get into her vehicle, but the windows would not break.

It was at that point she gave up and called a taxi to bring her to the hospital where Al was rushed to.

What a horrible moment to go through.

Page Six has more on the story:

Al Roker was rushed back to the hospital via ambulance the day after Thanksgiving amid his ongoing health scare due to blood clots.

The beloved “Today” anchor fell ill on Friday — just a day after he missed hosting the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade for the first time in 27 years due to having just been released from the hospital.

The popular weatherman, 68, was taken away by ambulance as his frantic wife, Deborah Roberts, attempted to break into their malfunctioned Tesla to retrieve her mobile phone to follow her husband to the uptown Manhattan hospital, sources say.

ABC News journalist Roberts, 62, tried to smash her way through a reinforced glass window on the front side of the car with the help of a neighbor outside their Upper East Side home, say, witnesses.

One witness told Page Six, “Al was taken from his home in a stretcher back to the hospital on Friday, the day after Thanksgiving. His condition was worrying, but once back in the hospital, he improved.

“His wife, Deborah, was understandably very upset. She had left her phone and other possessions inside their Tesla, which had malfunctioned and wouldn’t unlock, so she was trying to smash in a window.”

The onlooker said Roberts’ attempt to retrieve her belongings from inside the electric vehicle was “unsuccessful.”

“Deborah then went to the hospital by taxi with her daughter, where Al has since been surrounded by his family.”

Roker will also miss Wednesday’s Rockefeller Christmas tree lighting, it was announced today.

Roker and Roberts — who have been married since 1995 — share daughter Leila, 24, and son Nicholas, 20. The meteorologist also has a daughter Courtney, 35, with ex-wife Alice Bell.

Page Six reported earlier this month that Roker was hospitalized due to blood clots in his leg and lungs. The condition may be fatal if not discovered and treated early enough.

Well, let’s hope Al recovers quickly and that the Rokers get that Tesla fixed.
