Accoring to TMZ.com, Carrie Fisher suffered a massive heart attack Friday on a United flight from London to LAX. Carrie went into cardiac arrest and people on board were administering CPR. United Airlines says its crew reported Carrie as “unresponsive” when they landed.
TMZ was told, “the emergency occurred 15 minutes before the plane landed in L.A. A flight attendant asked if there were any medical personnel on board and an EMT who was sitting in the back of the plane came up to first class and administered life-saving measures”.
Witnesses at LAX told TMZ that “Carrie’s eyes were closed and she appeared unconscious as EMTs rushed her through the terminal. She had an oxygen mask on her face”.
The plane landed just after noon in L.A. and paramedics rushed her to a nearby hospital.
Fisher, who became famous, of course, as Princess Leia from ‘Star Wars,’ has been on a book tour.
Stay tuned for further details and please keep Carrie in your thoughts and prayers.
