Just one day after collapsing outside of a building in Park City, Utah, and being rushed to the hospital, Tracy Morgan is letting fans know that he’s doing alright and will be back at work by Tuesday.

“Superman ran into a little kryptonite. The high altitude in Utah shook up this kid from Brooklyn,” wrote Morgan on Twitter.

The 30 Rock actor was attending the Creative Coalition Spotlight Awards, where he was being honored with the Spotlight Initiative Award on Sunday. After his speech, he was escorted out of the building, where he collapsed and was taken to the hospital.

Morgan's rep also blamed the altitude for Morgan’s collapse. He released a statement after the actor was hospitalized: "From a combination of exhaustion and altitude, Tracy is seeking medical attention."

"He is with his fiancee and grateful to the Park City Medical Center for their care. Any reports of Tracy consuming alcohol are 100 percent false," added Morgan's rep.

“Gotta thank the AMAZING medical staff and all my supporters! Love you,” Morgan wrote on Monday. Morgan was taken to Park City Medical Center. A spokeswoman for the hospital stated that no drugs or alcohol were found in Morgan's system upon medical evaluation.

Morgan also told fans that he would be back at work on 30 Rock on Tuesday. Morgan, who received a kidney transplant two years ago, stars in the film Predisposed, which is screening at the Sundance Film Festival.
