The New York Post reported today on page 6 about Artie Langeâ€™s hospitalization due to attempted suicide.Â The article reads:
Troubled comic Artie Lange landed in the hospital after stabbing himself nine times in an apparent suicide attempt, sources told The Post. Lange's frantic mom called 911 Saturday morning after she entered his Hoboken apartment and found the bloodied funnyman, a law-enforcement source said. Lange sustained six "hesitation wounds" and three deep plunges. A source close to Lange's management team confirmed that the Howard Stern sidekick stabbed himself, adding that his mother had come to visit him that day to drop off food. Surgeons managed to save Lange despite heavy bleeding. "We all have our demons," Stern said on-air this week, referring to Lange's past battles with addiction. "Artie has given this show tremendous moments of great comedy. He's a tremendous contributor. He is a good man. Don't forget how great he is."
PhillyBurbs.com reported on Howard Sternâ€™s reaction to the news article.Â Stern says, "I'm sorry. I just feel sick about this, I don't know what to do."
Stern has not talked to Artie Lange recently and continued to say, according to phillyBurb.com
Â "If Artie wants to talk to me, he'll call me. I only wish him well. I don't know what's going to be. This is just too much, too much to bear. My thoughts go to his mother and sister who I'm sure are in great pain. That's mind-blowing."
