Stars Wars actor Carrie Fisher suffers heart attack during London-LA flight

Posted December 26, 2016

23 that the actress is now at UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles following a massive heart attack on-board a plane from London to LAX. She was given CPR by an EMT who was on the flight before the plane landed.

Paramedics met the plane and rushed Fisher to the hospital shortly before noon, Pacific time.

Fisher, whose singular voice shines through her active social media presence, boasts a devoted online network searching for the latest Star Wars news from the set, inspired strings of emoji and pictures of her adorable dog, Gary.

Sources told TMZ that Fisher, 60, was flying from London to Los Angeles when she went into cardiac arrest just 15 minutes before landing. Paramedics provided "advanced life support" and "aggressively treated" the patient on the way to local hospital, Scott said. "Our thoughts are with our customer at this time and any requests for additional information should be directed to local authorities", the statement read.

After scoring her breakout role in Star Wars, Carrie Fisher returned to the franchise in last year's Star Wars: The Force Awakens and had recently started shooting scenes for 2017's Star Wars: Episode VIII.

Fisher is well known for playing Princess Leia in the Star Wars trilogy.

Guardiola: City don't want Van Dijk
It had never happened before with the Champions League and the League Cup, and every three days you have to be focused. Manchester United, City and Arsenal must play three times in 10 days, but Guardiola insisted: 'It's not my business.

Fisher was returning home to Los Angeles after appearing in London to promote her new book, The Princess Diarist, which came out in November.

Please, please, please, be okay, Carrie Fisher.

The actress' former co-star Peter Mayhew, who played "Star Wars" character Chewbacca, called her "everyone's favorite princess right now". Who else is capable of suddenly releasing such salacious gossip about their Star Wars experience, decades after the film's release?

'Our thoughts are with Carrie, her family and friends'.

Eyewitnesses say Carrie had stopped breathing and was given treatment by other passengers, who happened to be medical professionals.
