(Newser) – Elin Nordegren was spotted leaving the hospital today after firefighters responded to an early-morning rescue call at the Florida home she shares with Tiger Woods. Radio logs show that an adult woman at first refused transport, then was on advanced life support, according to WESH-TV. Footage obtained by the station shows a middle-aged blonde woman being rolled into Health Central Hospital on a stretcher. The woman's identity is not yet known and officials are refusing to confirm details of the rescue call, but TMZ notes that Elin Nordegren's mother is in the US to support her daughter.

A black SUV similar to the one involved in Woods' crash arrived at the hospital moments after the ambulance, WFTV reports. Witnesses said the Cadillac Escalade was being driven by a woman who resembled Elin Nordegren, and has a license plate with only one character different from the one involved in the crash. A rep for Nordegren’s mother tells WKMG the two have not been in contact, so she can “neither confirm or deny anything.”
