According to a report published by KPopstarz, the hospital authorities stated that T.O.P. was brought to the hospital on June 6th at 12:34 pm KST by three people. While one person was holding the celebrity's upper body, the other two were carrying the rest of his body into the hospital. The emergency staff at the hospital instantly took charge of the case by proceeding with the examination made upon the patient as he was in a state of deep sleep and semi-consciousness. When he was brought to the hospital, it was observed that his pupils were contracted and he was experiencing a decreased corneal reflection as well.
According to the hospital staff, he was also suffering from respiratory failure due to low levels of oxygen in his body tagged along with a high level of carbon dioxide. He was in the critical state when brought to the hospital and thus, was admitted to the ICU on his arrival, wherein he is currently being taken care of at the moment.
