His manager tells TMZ, Bob woke up with a significant flare in back pain and instead of his family taking him to treatment, they made a decision to call in professionals rather than take the risk.

"The Fire Department went to his house for a non-emergency back problem".

"He hit the back of his head and decided it would be wise to go to the ER and get checked out", his rep told ET in June 2017.

"He's home, he's resting, he's comfortable".

"He was in the hospital for a day or two and [then came home]", his rep said before explaining that Barker's pain has continued as he recovered and he was experiencing more pain today.

With Barker now resting, the rep said it will take "some time" for the media personality to heal as he deals with the pain and difficulty of moving around. His housekeeper drove him to the hospital in that incident.

In a similar accident in October 2015, his head was reportedly split open after a fall. "He was in and out [of the hospital], spent maybe a couple of hours there". According to his rep, 94-year-old Barker suffered from back issues.
