Carrie Fisher's family is trying to hunt down the two medical professionals to who volunteered to help her when her heart stopped beating during a flight to LAX on December 23rd, 2016. She passed away four days later at UCLA Medical Center.
A source tells TMZ that Fisher's family wants to thank the two volunteers, one of whom is a nurse, who rushed to Fisher's aid when a flight attendant requested the assistance of any medical professionals on board after Fisher suffered a heart attack on the United flight.
The source says that the two unknown Samaritans "worked like crazy" on Fisher despite not being able to get a pulse for about 10 minutes. The family believes that if it were not for them, they would not have been given a few extra days to say goodbye to the Star Wars actress. The family is in contact with the airline to hopefully get the names of the two people who helped to prolong Fisher's life.
