Washington D.C. [USA], Dec. (ANI): Carrie Fisher, who recently suffered a heart attack while aboard a flight, is reportedly still in the Intensive Care Unit of the UCLA Medical Center. Fisher's brother Todd Fisher spoke to Entertainment Tonight, saying, "She is in the intensive care unit, she is being well looked after. If everyone could just pray for her that would be good." "The doctors are doing their thing and we don't want to bug them. We are waiting by patiently," he told the publication. Regarding the condition of the 60-year-old actress, the brother said, "We don't know. We hope for the best." "We certainly do not know her condition, that's why she is in ICU. I'm sure everyone wants to speculate, but now is not the time for that," Fisher added. The 'Star Wars' star was transported to the medical center after she went into cardiac arrest during a flight from London to Los Angeles, about 15 minutes before the plane was scheduled to land, according to E! Online. Upon landing, paramedics were on standby and immediately provided life support and treatment before transporting her to the hospital. (ANI)
