UPDATE: Fisher’s brother has stated that she’s now in stable condition and is expected to make a full recovery.
Star Wars actress Carrie Fisher has suffered a heart attack today and is now in critical condition in a Los Angeles hospital, reports TMZ. From what we’re hearing, she was flying from London to LA when the incident occurred. An EMT on board issued CPR and 15 minutes later the plane landed, at which point, Fisher was rushed to the hospital.
Sources close to the actress say that the heart attack was “massive” and that she went into “full cardiac arrest” while on board the plane. Once landed, Fisher was “aggressively treated” before being taken to the hospital where she remains at this time. Her condition is said to be “not good” but from what we understand, she’s still holding on.
We’ll update this story when and if further developments arise. Until then, we wish Carrie Fisher all the best and a speedy recovery.
