The Star Wars icon was listed in critical condition earlier in the day, after being moved from the ER to the Intensive Care Unit.Her brother, Todd Fisher, said reports that she is in stable condition are incorrect.“She’s in the ICU and everybody’s praying for her,” he told Variety. “There’s nothing new from the doctors. There’s nothing new at all… There’s no good news or bad news.”At about 12:15pm yesterday, paramedics and police at LAX responded to a call about woman with a medical emergency on flight 935 from London. Fisher, 60, had reportedly gone into cardiac arrest about 15 minutes before landing, and was reportedly receiving medical care from the flight crew and passengers with medical training.Once the ground, an unresponsive Fisher was taken to UCLA Medical Center and placed on a ventilator.Friends and co-stars have been sending their support to the Hollywood legend.
“As if 2016 couldn’t get any worse,” Mark Hamill tweeted. “Sending all our love to @carrieffisher.”
