Jeopardy! Host Alex Trebek Hospitalized After Heart Attack
Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek was admitted into Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Saturday after suffering a mild heart attack, according to his representative. The 71-year-old game show host remains under observation, but is said to be in good spirits.
Trebek is expected to be back on the Jeopardy! set when production starts for the show’s 29th season in July.
Last year, Trebek suffered a torn Achilles tendon after chasing down a burglar who had broken into his room at a San Francisco hotel. He was hospitalized for a minor heart attack in December 2007, and he escaped a car crash without any injuries in 2004 when he fell asleep at the wheel.
