Sad news is being reported by TMZ before the holiday weekend. Star Wars star, Carrie Fisher has suffered a massive heart attack on an airplane. The 60-year-old Princess Leia actress was on a book tour and arriving back in Los Angeles’ LAX airport when she went into cardiac arrest.
Just 15 minutes before the plane was about to land a flight attendant asked passengers if there were any doctors onboard the aircraft. Luckily an EMT was in the back of the plane who quickly came to the First Class section to perform CPR and other life saving measures. As soon as the plane landed it was met on by emergency services who rushed Fisher to a nearby hospital.
She and her awesome dog Gary were recently interviewed by Stephen Colbert to promote her book “The Princess Diarist” in which she reveals she had an off camera romance with Harrison Ford during the filming of A New Hope.
