LATEST: Pop star Isaac Hanson was rushed to a New York hospital after suffering a blood clot in his arm, his spokespeople say.

The MMMBOP hitmaker was in Manhattan with bandmates and siblings TAYLOR and ZACHARY when he was taken ill.

And a representative for the 23-year-old admitted yesterday (20NOV03) that his condition is cause for concern.

The rep says, "It's a lot more serious than we thought it was when he went in. He is slightly uncomfortable, but the outlook is good.

"The clot may be attributed to a prior injury, or the repetitive, strenuous activity as a guitarist."
