Comedian Jerry Lewis Rushed to Sydney Hospital

Ethan Miller/Getty Images(SYDNEY) -- Jerry Lewis, on tour in Australia on behalf of the Muscular Dystrophy Foundation of Australia, was rushed to a Sydney hospital on Friday just minutes before a scheduled appearance, according to a written statement issued by the organization.

In the statement, MDF Australia CEO David Jack said the 85-year-old comedian was "not well enough to take the stage." Lewis has struggled with a number of health problems recently, including a debilitating back condition, heart problems and the lung condition known as pulmonary fibrosis.
