BUENOS AIRES, March 7 (UPI) -- CNN founder Ted Turner flew to Buenos Aires for surgery after being diagnosed with appendicitis during a visit to Argentina, a spokesman said Friday.

Turner was initially hospitalized in Bariloche, a resort city in the Nahuel Huapi National Park in the Andes foothills in Patagonia, the Buenos Aires Herald reported. He refused to undergo surgery at the hospital there and was transferred to Buenos Aires.

Turner founded CNN in 1980 after a successful career in television advertising and the ownership of TV stations. He owns large amounts of land in Patagonia, including a ranch of more than 10,000 acres.
