SKY race caller Matthew Hill has been evacuated to a Hong Kong hospital and is in an induced coma after collapsing with suspected pneumonia at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
Matthew fell ill on the weekend while working Macquarie Radio at the rowing regatta, he then spent most of his time studio based to combat the health concerns. He collapsed from heat-stress on Monday.
He appeared to recover after being rehydrated but Hill's condition deteriorated rapidly and unexpectedly on Tuesday night. He has now been placed in an induced coma as he is flown to a Hong Kong hospital in a specially equiped medical evacuation aircraft. His parents and brother are now flying from Melbourne to be with him in Hong Kong.
