This is so sad. The 911 call from the heart attack that led to Carrie Fisher’s untimely death has been released, and it reveals how hard everyone — including the pilot — tried to save her life. Click inside to listen.
Carrie Fisher, 60, suffered a devastating heart attack on Friday, December 23, while traveling from London, England to Los Angeles, California, and now the tape from the 911 call has been made available to the public. In the short clip from the 911 call, an airline employee tells the operator they have a female in distress, and confirms that the pilot is landing the plane in less than 10 minutes so that they can get her emergency help.
Despite the quick landing, Carrie never recovered from the life threatening situation. Sadly, the beloved actress remained in the ICU over the Christmas weekend until she died four days later on December 27. Her death was so heartbreaking for the family that her own mother, the legendary Debbie Reynolds, suffered a stroke the next day and passed away just hours later.
Carrie and her mother, Debbie, will be remembered at a double memorial on Thursday, January 5. Although Carrie has already been cremated, part of her ashes will be buried with Debbie on Friday, January 6 at the Forest Lawn cemetery.
