Hollywood icon Carrie Fisher passed from a second cardiac arrest on Tuesday, US time, according to TMZ. It has been further revealed that the star never regained consciousness after she collapsed on a London to LA flight late last week.
The star had reportedly been on life support following her first medical emergency on the United Airlines flight, which sources confirm was also a cardiac arrest.
According to TMZ, insiders say there had earlier in the week been discussions among her devastated family about the heartbreaking possibility of switching off her ventilator, as her condition failed to improve, but that horrible decision was never needed to be made, after Carrie's heart simply stopped beating on Tuesday, ending her life.
Rest in peace, Carrie. You will be missed.
