RIP Carrie Fisher (1956-2016)

From TMZ:
Carrie Fisher suffered a massive heart attack Friday on an airplane ... TMZ has learned.

Our sources say Carrie was on a flight from London to LAX when she went into cardiac arrest. People on board were administering CPR.

We're told the emergency occurred 15 minutes before the plane landed in L.A. A flight attendant asked if there were any medical personnel on board and an EMT who was sitting in the back of the plane came up to first class and administered life-saving measures.

The plane landed just after noon in L.A. and paramedics rushed her to a nearby hospital.

Fisher, who became famous, of course, as Princess Leia from 'Star Wars,' has been on a book tour.

Story developing ...
Don't you fucking dare be this savage, 2016!

Do I still have time to edit my Dead pool 2017 list in the Other forum?

According to Max Landis, who claims to have friends on the plane next to her, she is believed to be dead...

Anyone following Max Landis on Twitter? He's been talking to people that were either on the plane or with her now and he seems to think she's dead.

Shit. 2016 narrowly missed another one.

Damn, still more than a week left!

Seriously, talk about the worst place to have a heart attack!

Guessing Disney had better put a little more work in on that CG Princess Leia ...

Damn. I hope she pulls through. She was lucky that the plane was only 15 minutes away from landing. I can't imagine what would have happened if it was still over the Atlantic.

I've read a couple of other tweets (not related to Landis' friends) who claim "someone" died on their flight from London to LA... they were unaware at the time who it was...

So are we going to get a Paul Walker fast and furious situation here with episode 8?

Episode 8 is done filming... It would impact 9.

A homoerotic drive off into the sunset? Maybe.

Well shit, hopefully she's okay. She was looking pretty good for The Force Awakens but she's definitely lived a rough life.

re: RIP Carrie Fisher (1956-2016)

If she went into full arrest on the plane, even just 15 minutes from landing, and all she got was CPR, she is probably not going to be in a good way at all even if she pulls through. Sad.

If they have to kill her off in the Star Wars sequel, I wonder if Luke would bypass Chewy and comfort someone she barely knew instead.

She was on all the talk shows a few weeks ago promoting her book, and was as funny & crazy as ever.

2:46 PM PT -- We're told when the plane landed paramedics worked on Carrie for 15 minutes with CPR before they were able to get a pulse. She's currently at UCLA Medical Center on a ventilator.

Maybe Chewy can lay the medal she gave him on her casket...oh right.


Wow, Leia's been kind of a dick to Chewy.

I suspect Chewy jumped out of the overhead compartment and scared her into a heart-attack. Revenge is a bitch.
