Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak was rushed to a hospital in Mexico City on Wednesday, raising concerns about a possible stroke, according to reports from Mexican media outlets. Reports are suggesting that the illness might be a less serious bout of vertigo.
The 73-year-old scientist and tech entrepreneur was scheduled to participate in a World Business Forum event in Mexico City’s Santa Fe neighborhood on Wednesday afternoon. Event organizers did not immediately respond to requests for comment, and there was no means to immediately confirm the reports of Wozniak’s hospitalization.
Wozniak had been slated to speak at the conference at 4:20 p.m. local time, but after finishing his speech, he reportedly told his wife that he was “feeling strange.” Concerned about his symptoms, she insisted that he go to the hospital.
