Ted Turner is out of a South American hospital and back in the U.S. after being rushed in for surgery Friday as a result of appendicitis. 

According to The Hollywood Reporter, “The 75-year-old media mogul was taken to the hospital in Argentina on Friday and underwent a minor surgical procedure due to appendicitis.
“In a statement released Monday, Turner said in part: ‘I’m happy to report I'm recuperating well and looking forward to getting back to business as usual.’”
Turner is the founder of both CNN and Turner Broadcasting Systems.
