Report: '60 Minutes' correspondent Lara Logan taken to hospital

Lara Logan reportedly hospitalized with internal bleeding


CBS News correspondent Lara Logan was reportedly rushed to the hospital Wednesday suffering from internal bleeding. A CBS spokesperson declined to comment on Logan’s condition telling FOX411, “We wish Lara a very speedy recovery.”

The “60 Minutes” reporter is expected to remain in the DC area hospital for a few days while she recovers from the digestive disease diverticulitis, the New York Post reports.

The “60 Minutes” staff has had a difficult year so far following the unexpected death of veteran journalist Bob Simon who was killed in a car crash on the West Side Highway Feb. 11.

Logan has also had a bumpy past few years. The South-African born journalist was forced to take a leave of absence in 2013 after an internal CBS review discredited her reporting of a Benghazi report.

Logan was also quarantined last year in a South African hotel after reporting from a hospital in Liberia that was treating Ebola patients.
