The actor Carrie Fisher reportedly suffered a heart attack on Friday, on a flight to Los Angeles from London.
Her brother, Todd Fisher, told the Associated Press she was “out of emergency” and stabilized at a Los Angeles hospital. He said he could not discuss any other details about what happened.
There was no confirmation of the Star Wars actor’s condition from emergency services. Erik Scott, a spokesman for the Los Angeles fire department, told the Guardian: “At 12.11pm the Los Angeles fire department responded to LAX airport for a patient in cardiac arrest.
“Firefighters aggressively provided advanced medical life support and transported the patient to a local area hospital.”
A United Airlines statement said: “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.”
