(Newser) – Carrie Fisher is "out of emergency" and in stable condition following a major heart attack Friday during a flight from London to Los Angeles, the actress' brother tells the AP. Emergency officials had told the Los Angeles Times that Fisher was in critical condition following a "cardiac episode." A source says she was "in a lot of distress on the flight," and she was taken to a hospital immediately upon landing at LAX. Sources told NBC News the 60-year-old's condition was "not good." Fisher had just completed filming on Star Wars: Episode VIII and was recently in the news for her new autobiography, which revealed an affair with costar Harrison Ford.
