Carrie Fisher, the writer and actress who played the iconic Star Wars princess has died after she was rushed to the hospital.
She suffered heart attack while on a flight from London to Los Angeles.
Carrie Fisher died while on admission at a Hospital in LA.
TMZ first reported the news of the medical emergency, later saying the actress was at UCLA Medical Center on a ventilator.
Fisher, 60, is perhaps best known for her role as strong-willed Princess Leia in the Star Wars franchise.
Fisher’s representative did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Erik Scott said the department responded at 12:11 p.m. PT at LAX International Airport, Gate 74, for a patient on an inbound flight in cardiac arrest. “The LAFD firefighter paramedics were standing by for the plane’s arrival and provided advanced life support, and aggressively treated and transported (the patient) to a local hospital,” Scott said.
