Posted by: Jason Tate (03/16/12)

Update: Invisible Children CEO, Ben Keesey, has released the following statement.

Statement from Invisible ChildrenJason Russell was unfortunately hospitalized yesterday suffering from exhaustion, dehydration, and malnutrition. He is now receiving medical care and is focused on getting better. The past two weeks have taken a severe emotional toll on all of us, Jason especially, and that toll manifested itself in an unfortunate incident yesterday. Jasonís passion and his work have done so much to help so many, and we are devastated to see him dealing with this personal health issue. We will always love and support Jason, and we ask that you give his entire family privacy during this difficult time.

Update #2: A video of the event in question, has hit the internet.
