My heart is heavy this Christmas Eve morning as the first news I read is that Carrie Fisher suffered a massive heart attack on a flight from London to L.A. and is currently in critical condition in the UCLA medical centre.
She may not be the perfect princess and role model in the real world, but in the Star Wars ‘Fandom’ Universe she’s the head matriarch of her extended Star Wars Family… ‘our Princess’ that strong feminine character on-screen and one not afraid to speak her mind off-screen.
Thinking of you Carrie Fisher. Get well soon, your worshipfulness
Star Wars” actress Carrie Fisher was in critical condition Friday after suffering a “cardiac episode” during a flight from London to Los Angeles, according to emergency officials. Fisher, 60, was rushed to the hospital by Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics shortly after noon, after her flight touched down at LAX.
A source who was not authorized to discuss the incident said the actress was “in a lot of distress on the flight.” A statement released by United Airlines said that medical personnel met flight 935 from London upon arrival after the crew reported a passenger was unresponsive.
According to the LAX Police Department, officers responded to Terminal 7 around 12:15 p.m., for a call of a female passenger in cardiac arrest. Upon arriving, they found paramedics performing CPR on the victim, according to Officer Alicia Hernandez.
