Carrie Fisher has suffered what has been called a “massive” heart attack while on a plane.
The Star Wars actress was on a flight from London to Los Angeles earlier today when she went into cardiac arrest, report TMZ. The emergency apparently took place approximately 15 minutes before the plane landed, with an EMT who happened to be on-board tending to Fisher.
A spokesperson for the Los Angeles Fire Department has confirmed to E! News that “advanced life support” was performed by medics before she was taken to hospital after the plane landed.
Fisher was in London promoting her book “The Princess Diarist”.
