“Star Wars” actress Carrie Fisher was spending Christmas in intensive care at Los Angeles UCLA Medical Center two days after suffering a “cardiac episode” during a flight from London to Los Angeles, Joinfo.com reports with reference to the Los Angeles Times.
“If there is a change, we will share it. For all her fans & friends, I thank you for your prayers & good wishes,” Reynolds tweeted.
Fisher, 60, was rushed to the hospital by Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics shortly after noon Friday after her 11-hour flight touched down at LAX.
A source who was not authorized to discuss the incident said the actress was “in a lot of distress on the flight.”
Hospital officials have not provided any details about Fisher’s condition. But family members have suggested doctors have been able to stabilize her.
“She’s obviously a very tough girl who’s survived many things,” Todd Fisher, Carrie Fisher’s brother, told KABC-TV Channel 7. “I encourage everyone to pray for her.”
