The "Star Wars" family reacts to the Carrie Fisher news and our hearts are so heavy
Earlier today, Carrie Fisher was on a flight from London to Los Angeles when she suffered a massive cardiac arrest just before the plane landed. As we’ve since learned, she was taken off the plane and rushed to a nearby hospital, where she is currently in critical condition (the latest report from TMZ says that she is currently on a ventilator).
This is an incredibly scary incident to happen to one of our favorite people on the planet, and we’re sending Carrie so much love and positive vibes right now. And we know what you’re thinking: 2016 wouldn’t DARE take
Princess General Leia from us. But, if there’s anyone who can pull through this, it’s Carrie. She has battled far worse demons (and Sith) in her life.
While the world waits for news of her condition, friends and fans have taken to Twitter (which just happens to be one of Carrie’s favorite places on the internet) to send her well wishes, and pray for her speedy recovery.
