Singer Rod Stewart has revealed he called an ambulance after his 11-year-old son turned blue and collapsed while watching a football game.
A suspected heart attack was initially considered the cause of the medical event.
The evening standard reports that the rock veteran, 77, recalled his son turning “blue and unconscious” while playing for his Young Hoops Under-12 team.
Although the hitman did not provide further details on when the incident occurred, he did confirm that an ambulance was present.
Stewart revealed to FourFourTwo magazine: “We thought my boy had had a heart attack.
“He would turn blue and was unconscious until he calmed down. It was scary, but it turned out to be a panic attack. The boy meant well, Hoops in Scotland made for his father.
“Another boy fell backwards and hit his head – he still hasn’t come back. Of all my days watching football, this was the only time two ambulances were called.
He shares son Aiden with wife Penny Lancaster Stewart, whom he married in 2007.
The Maggie May singer also has seven other children.
His offspring are from romances with five different women. He has two sons with his current wife Penny, 51, model Alastair, 16, and Aiden.
Kimberly, 43, and Sean, 42, are from Rod’s first marriage to actress Alana Stewart, 77, and his daughter Ruby, 35, is from his relationship with model Kelly Emberg, 63.
