Carrie Fisher suffers massive heart attack on flight from London to Los Angeles

Carrie Fisher suffered a massive heart attack on Friday during a flight from London to Los Angeles, TMZ reports. Her brother told the Associated Press she is now "out of emergency" and has been stabilized.

The 60-year-old actress reportedly went into cardiac arrest 15 minutes before the flight arrived in Los Angeles and a passenger on the plane, who was an EMT, administered CPR until the flight landed and medical personnel rushed her from the hospital to a nearby hospital.
