Some people who say they were on board the plane with Fisher took to social media to share the news as well.
Don't know how else to process this but Carrie Fisher stopped breathing on the flight home. Hope she's gonna be OK 😞— Anna Akana (@AnnaAkana) December 23, 2016
So many thanks to the United flight crew who jumped into action, and the awesome doctor and nurse passengers who helped— Anna Akana (@AnnaAkana) December 23, 2016
Feel weird even tweeting about it but I JUST finished her book and was fangirling out over seeing her dog Gary in person. Gah.— Anna Akana (@AnnaAkana) December 23, 2016
