Actress Carrie Fisher suffered a medical emergency aboard a flight Friday afternoon and her condition remains unclear.
Her brother, Todd Fisher, told the AP that she was “out of emergency” and stabilized at a Los Angeles hospital Friday afternoon. He said he could not discuss any other details about what happened.
But both the LA Times and TMZ say Fisher is still in critical condition. A local ABC affiliate reports she is still “on a ventilator.”..

Actress Anna Akana was on board the flight when Fisher went into medical distress and she described the upsetting scene in a series of tweets.
She said Fisher stopped breathing and was helped by a doctor and nurse who happened to be on board.
A United Airlines spokesperson said: “Medical personnel met United flight 935 from London to Los Angeles upon arrival today after the crew reported that a passenger was unresponsive.
“Our thoughts are with our customer at this time and any requests for additional information should be directed to local authorities.”
Akana, 27, wrote: “Don’t know how else to process this but Carrie Fisher stopped breathing on the flight home. Hope she’s gonna be OK.
“So many thanks to the United flight crew who jumped into action, and the awesome doctor and nurse passengers who helped.”
Akana wrote that Fisher wasn’t breathing “for 10 minutes or so” and CPR was administered until the plane landed.
