Basically it says he was shot at a bar. The situation is not clear how. And he was taken to a local health facility.

BREAKING: David Ortiz is stable but B+ blood is URGENTLY needed at “CEDIMAT” so if you’re in the Dominican Republic PLEASE HELP OUT!
I don't know about that one, it's a Red Sox fan page that I wouldn't think usually breaks news, no source provided, unless they were listening to a police scanner somehow I don't see how they would get something like that for real.

If blood is urgently needed, the patient is not stable. Something doesn't jive with this.
In many hospitals in the Dominican you need to bring your own blood (or a donor) with you when you’re scheduled for surgery or even for ER visits so this isn’t totally abnormal.
