Just read she has had a heart attack. Hoping so much she is okay or that it's fake news.

The BBC is quoting US media reports. They're not saying it's confirmed, but must be reasonably sure, to put it on their website.

Oh no I read it and was hoping it was one of the stupid stories that take off.
Fingers crossed and hoping she's okay.

Looks like some people who witnessed it couldn't wait to splash it all over social media.

The I don't trust 2016 one bit.

As in it's only delivered bad news

I don't think there can be any doubt that it was she who had a medical episode on the flight.

Some of the media reports sound distinctly pessimistic, but I hope that's just over-excited reporter.

Yeah the Twitter stuff was a bit unkind. Surely you'd forgo the attention to let her family find out more appropriately

I was horrified at that actress tweeting during the flight! Attention seeking imo. I wonder if her family even knew at that point? News reports this morning say she's in ICU in a serious condition. I hope she pulls through.

Yes the whole notion of "processing" other people's tragedies by broadcasting them on social media is pretty nasty.

The actress has come in for a bit of flak from Twitter about this. Have you read the thread about Carrie Fisher on the Graham Norton show? She seemed a bit spaced out then, and I'm wondering whether she had started to become unwell a week ago? sad

Did read it on bbc. So, people who were on the flight were tweeting about it as it happened ?? Oh god.

noeuf Sat 24-Dec-16 13:24:36

Yes apparently . Hit Twitter as soon as they landed. Suspect this kind of lack of manners and respect will get worse

mudandmayhem01 Sat 24-Dec-16 14:27:53

Come on Carrie, pull through. Keep looking at twitter and hoping for some good news ( and refused to click on the awful DM article blaming her heart attack on her past alcohol and drug abuse issues.)

TheSecondOfHerName Sat 24-Dec-16 19:24:58

The BBC article says she received CPR for 30 minutes. If this is accurate, then I worry about her chances of making a full recovery. sad

TheSecondOfHerName Tue 27-Dec-16 18:07:23

I would much rather have been wrong sad

Thelonewanderer Tue 27-Dec-16 18:09:54

Just heard the news that she has died sad

FaithFromTheRealmsOfGlory Tue 27-Dec-16 18:21:49

sad RIP Carrie. Best wishes to her family.

Wolfiefan Tue 27-Dec-16 18:26:24

Just saw this online. So sad. Thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends. flowers

Did hope she'd bounce back - very sad news

DalekBred Wed 28-Dec-16 16:25:07

Another part of my childhood memories gone sad.

what made it worse for me is that we were watching The Force Awakens yesterday on DVD. Hadnt seen it yet.

was elated seeing the Falcon, Chewie, Han at al, fan girl 9 year old me came back BIG time -re very strange looks from DC!

After seeing her on that then putting the news on...................sad

Just seen on the news that her mum has died today too sad

FaithFromTheRealmsOfGlory Thu 29-Dec-16 12:33:14

RIP Debbie. How awful for the family.
