As previously reported, Hollywood star Carrie Fisher suffered a cardiac arrest while onboard a plane traveling from London to Los Angeles on December 23. The flight crew and passengers were responsible for treating her on the plane. After they landed at LAX International Airport, paramedics took over and provided advanced life support while transporting her to the UCLA Medical Center.
Yesterday, Carrie’s brother, Todd, did an interview with KABC in which he noted that his sister is currently getting the best care she can receive. He also said that “She’s obviously a very tough girl who’s survived many things. I encourage everyone to pray for her.”
Today, Fisher’s mother and Hollywood legend, Debbie Reynolds, took to Twitter to update the rest of the world about her daughter’s condition.
She tweeted that “Carrie is in stable condition. If there is a change, we will share it. For all her fans & friends. I thank you for your prayers & good wishes.”
Carrie is best known for portraying Princess Leia in the Star Wars films. One of her co-stars, Harrison Ford, released a statement yesterday in which he said that he was both shocked and saddened to hear the news about Carrie, whom he considers to be a dear friend.
