Don the Slytherin colors as we dive into what we know so far about Harry Potter actor Tom Felton’s collapse.
Collapse & recovery
Tom Felton collapsed while participating in a golf game ahead of the Ryder Cup, which begins today and Felton was meant to play on a European team, competing with the U.S. The event took place at the Sheboygan, Wisconsin course known as Whistling Straits. Felton had been on the eighteenth hole when he collapsed without warning, worrying many of his fellow players.
After his collapse, Felton was immediately placed on a stretcher and taken away on a cart off the course, though reports state that he was conscious at the time of his removal. It was not until today that his condition was known to the internet, but his friend Derek Pitts did reassure the internet that he was alright despite still being in the hospital.
“He’s okay, speedy recovery brother,” Pitts wrote on his Instagram story today, much to the relief of fans. Organizers have not disclosed the cause of the collapse, though they did say Felton experienced a “medical incident” and was taken to a local hospital for treatment. Representatives of Felton have yet to comment on the situation.
Get well soon @TomFelton 🤗🥰

AKA our reaction when we first heard the news.
I saw an update that said he was just dehydrated, which unfortunately happens a lot with golfers. Good news is his brother said he’s doing okay and they just kept him overnight in the hospital to monitor him

It is concerning but don’t worry, he seems to be fine!
Praying and thinking about @TomFelton who reportedly collapsed earlier today while playing golf.
The good news is he was alert and was seen smiling afterwards as the medics took him to be further evaluated.
Just need an update now saying that he is indeed completely okay…
— Harry Potter Universe (@HPotterUniverse) September 24, 2021
That is the good part – he thankfully seems alright!
He just had his 34th birthday this week! I'm praying for his recovery, we love you Tom 😔

Definitely a . . . memorable way to start off thirty-four, to say the least.
