Orange County Fire-Rescue released a recording this afternoon of a frantic 911 call seeking help for Tiger Woods' mother-in-law.
"Hurry up. My mom just collapsed," a female caller said to an emergency dispatcher about 2:35 a.m.
"Calm down for me for a minute, OK?" the dispatcher asked.
Barbro Holmberg, 57, was rushed to Health Central Hospital in Ocoee, where she was admitted and released before 2 p.m. That's the same place an ambulance brought Woods after he careened his Cadillac Escalade into a fire hydrant, curb and tree early Nov. 27.
The caller said her mother fainted. A baby cried in the background. Towards the end of the more than three-minute recording, the caller said she thought her mother was fine and she didn't need immediate help, but allowed paramedics to come to her home to check her out.
A spokeswoman for Orange County Fire Rescue said privacy laws prevent her from releasing the identity of the female caller on the 911 recording.
Holmberg, a Swedish politician, arrived in the country after the scandal broke and has been staying at the Woods house for the past few days. She is the mother of Elin Nordegren Woods, Tiger Woods' wife.
Holmberg had more than one visitor today, hospital spokesman Dan Yates said. He did not specify whether they included Tiger Woods. Several news outlets have said Woods' is feuding with his wife Elin Nordegren Woods after published reports he had affairs with multiple women.
Holmberg left "in good spirits" and "in a good state," Yates said.
The hospital made special accommodations for Holmberg because of the intense media interest in her case, Yates said.
"We expedited her checkout quicker than most," Yates said. She was also placed in a ward that gave her more privacy.
The hospital does not expect Holmberg to return for a follow-up, Yates said. Earlier today, he said her condition was not serious, but he declined to say if she had undergone surgery, citing medical privacy laws.
Today's news conferences were held with the permission of the Woods family, Yates said.
Holmberg was taken to the hospital by ambulance after a 2:35 a.m. call to 911 requesting medical assistance at 6348 Deacon Circle, the Woods family home in the gated Isleworth community, according to a dispatch log released by Orange County Sheriff's Office this morning.
The log was brief and heavily redacted.
Audio of the 911 call will be released on Wednesday, Orange County Fire Rescue spokeswoman Marianne Nuckles said.
This afternoon, Health Central Hospital was besieged by members of the media. Blackwood Avenue, on the hospital's west side, was crowded with more than two-dozen media trucks and vans from local, national and international news outlets.
Passers-by yelled to reporters, asking if Woods is the reason for the commotion.
"This really is unbelievable," motorist Tomas Fredericks said as he and his friend drove past.
Holmberg took a week's leave from her job as Gavleborg county governor in central-east Sweden, her spokesperson Eva Malmborg told AP, but she said she did not know where Holmberg had gone.
She said she could not comment on Tuesday's reports.
