Carrie Fisher didn’t make it from the intensive care after a massive heart attack on the Christmas plane trip :O Oh noooooooooooo, she’s dead! 😥 This is just…horrible! Our hearts are broken…
On December 23, 2016, Fisher went into cardiac arrest while on a flight from London to Los Angeles; a fellow actor seated near Fisher reported that she had stopped breathing. A passenger performed CPR on Fisher until paramedics arrived. After being taken to R.R UCLA Med Center by ambulance, she was placed on a ventilator.
Fisher died at age 60 on December 27, 2016, at 8:55 am local time in Los Angeles. Fisher’s daughter, Billie Lourde, confirmed the actress’s death in a statement given to the press shortly afterward by family spokesperson, Simon Halls. At the time of her death, Fisher was survived by her daughter, her mother Debbie Reynolds, her brother Todd Fisher and her half-sisters Joely and Tricia Fisher.
In her book, Wishful Drinking, Fisher had written
“I want it reported that I drowned in moonlight, strangled by my own bra.”
