A person was taken from Tiger Woods's multimillion-dollar Florida home "on advanced life support" after firefighters received a call at 2:36 a.m. Tuesday, reports local station WESH-TV.

Witnesses told the NBC affiliate station, which aired footage of what appeared to be a blond woman receiving oxygen as she was carried on a stretcher, that an ambulance transported the patient to Health Central Hospital.

The station speculated, but could not confirm, that the middle-aged woman seen in the video was the patient taken from Woods's house, based on the time that the ambulance arrived at the hospital in Ocoee, the same facility where Woods was treated after his one-car crash the day after Thanksgiving.

The station further reported that a black Escalade seen leaving the hospital shortly afterward had registration information similar to the Escalade driven by Woods on the night of his crash. And another Orlando TV station, WOFL, reported that the patient later left the hospital.

Speaking to PEOPLE, the Orange County sheriff’s office confirmed that at 2:35 a.m. the 911 center received a call for some sort of medical issue at Woods's house and turned it over to fire rescue. Contacted in Sweden, a spokeswoman for Barbro Holmberg, the mother of Tiger Woods's wife, Elin Nordegren, said she had not heard of the incident and did now know whether Holmberg was in Florida with her daughter, as has also been reported. • Reporting by SIMON PERRY
