Sheriff's office confirms Tuesday morning 911 call came from Woods' house

WINDERMERE, Fla. (AP) - The Orange County Sheriff's Office is confirming that fire department medics responded to a 911 call at Tiger Woods' Orlando-area home early Tuesday.

Sheriff's spokesman Jim Solomons told The Associated Press the office got a 911 call from Woods' home at 2:35 a.m. Tuesday and transferred it to Orange County Fire Rescue.

Orange County Fire Rescue spokeswoman Genevieve Latham earlier wouldn't confirm the address but said an adult was taken to Health Central Hospital in Ocoee, the same place Woods was treated after he crashed his sport utility vehicle outside his home last month.

The patient's condition wasn't immediately known.

Media attention has been focused on the world's No. 1 golfer since he hit a hydrant and a tree around 2:25 a.m. on the Friday after Thanksgiving.
