Carrie Fisher Confirmed Taken to Hospital After Heart Attack, Condition "Not Good"

Update: TMZ reports Paramedics had found a pulse on Fisher after administering CPR, before transporting her to the hospital on a ventilator.

Original Story: After suffering a heart attack on a plane from London to Los Angeles, Carrie Fisher is currently at the hospital. The 60 year-old actress suffered complete cardiac arrest on the plane, and was sustained with life support methods by medical professional passengers on the flight until it landed.

NBC News confirmed with law enforcement officials in Los Angeles that the actress was rushed to a local hospital, and her condition was "not good." No further updates about her status were given, except that she's now been at the hospital for over an hour.

Variety reports her condition as critical, according to an emergency official.


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.

Fans and celebrities alike have rallied around Fisher on social media, offering thoughts, prayers, and every variation of "May the Force be with you" possible, referencing her most famous role as Princess Leia in Star Wars. She reprised the role after three decades in last year's box office smash Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and finished filming Star Wars: Episode VIII in the summer, currently in post-production for a December 2017 release.
