Larry King's wife recovering from apparent overdose

Emergency medical workers were called to home in late May

PROVO, Utah -- A spokesman for Larry King says the talk-show host's wife is recovering after an apparent prescription drug overdose last month in Utah.

Emergency medical workers were called to Shawn King's home in Provo on May 28. Her father dialed 911 after finding the 50-year-old woman in her bed, breathing but not responding when he tried to wake her.

He told dispatchers that he thought she may have taken too much medication for anxiety or depression.

Larry and Shawn King filed for divorce in April, but Larry King released a statement Wednesday saying their marriage is still together.

King spokesman Howard Rubenstein says Shawn King is in good shape and enjoying her life.
