The news of Carrie Fisher's heart attack on a recent United Airlines flight has been coming together over the last few hours, and now the contents of the airline staff audio recording has come out.
Fisher was returning from a book tour when she suffered a heart attack as it was about to land at LAX. She had stopped breathing for around 10 minutes, and the audio recording (via Daily Mirror) describes that several airline personnel and fellow passengers were attempting to assist her.
"We have some passengers, nurses assisting the passenger," according to the recording. "We have an unresponsive passenger, so they're working on her right now."
Sitting next to Fisher was actress Anna Akana, who confirmed the situation on Twitter.
"Don't know how else to process this, but Carrie Fisher stopped breathing on the flight home. Hope she's gonna be OK. So many thanks to the United flight crew who jumped into action, and the awesome doctor and nurse passengers who helped," Akana wrote.
A United Airlines spokesperson issued a statement saying ""Medical personnel met United flight 935 from London to Los Angeles upon arrival today after the crew reported that a passenger was unresponsive. Our thoughts are with our customer at this time and any requests for additional information should be directed to local authorities."
LAFD's Erik Scott released a statement that a victim was "provided advanced life support, aggressively treated, and transported" to a hospital after the plane landed at 12:11 p.m. PST, though no officials have confirmed Fisher by name on the record, and Fisher's representatives have not yet responded to requests for comments.
Fisher has been reported to be in stable condition now, and hopefully family, friends, and fans will know more soon.0comments
