Dramatic audio from Carrie Fisher’s flight as pilot radios in medical emergency for ‘unresponsive’ Star Wars actress

This dramatic audio from Carrie Fisher’s United Airlines flight records the pilot radioing in a medical emergency after the ‘unresponsive’ Star Wars actress suffered a massive heart attack.

Fisher was put in to intensive care on a ventilator after paramedics were able to find a pulse while trying to resuscitate her.

She was taken to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center after the United Airlines flight she was on landed at LAX.

In the audio recording the pilot can be heard telling air traffic control that passengers on board were assisting with treating Fisher.

He said they are working on her right now and we are going to have her seated in about two minutes.

Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia

Passengers performed CPR on the 60-year-old star after she went into cardiac arrest on the flight, TMZ reported.

The United Airlines plane landed shortly after noon local time at Los Angeles International Airport after an 11-hour flight.

Fisher was then rushed to a nearby hospital by paramedics.

The LAX Police Department has revealed officers responded to Terminal 7 around 12:15 p.m. – for a call of a female passenger in cardiac arrest.
On arrival, they found paramedics performing CPR on the victim, according to Officer Alicia Hernandez.

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.

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.

Fisher has been travelling the world to promote her new book, the Princess Diarist, and posted a number of photos during her visit to the UK.

In her most recent tweet she posed for a photo outside Charles Dickens Lounge.

While in London Fisher recorded an appearance on the Graham Norton Show on December 7 and met fans as she promoted her book on December 11.

She became a global star after portraying Princess Leia in Star Wars and recently reprised the role in the series’ two most recent films.

Devastated fans expressed their shock and sadness on social media, and offered prayers and thoughts for the actress.

    Largest DDoS attack ever delivered by botnet of hijacked IoT devices #ddos

    Largest DDoS attack ever delivered by botnet of hijacked IoT devices

    Securing the internet of things should become a major priority now that an army of compromised devices – perhaps 1 million strong – has swamped one of the industry’s top distributed denial-of-service protection services.

    A giant botnet made up of hijacked internet-connected things like cameras, lightbulbs, and thermostats has launched the largest DDoS attack ever against a top security blogger, an attack so big Akamai had to cancel his account because defending it ate up too many resources.

    It wasn’t that Akamai couldn’t mitigate the attack – it did so for three days – but doing so became too costly, so the company made a business decision to cut the affected customer loose, says Andy Ellis the company’s chief security officer.

    The delivery network has dropped protection for the Krebs on Security blog written by Brian Krebs after an attack delivering 665Gbps of traffic overwhelmed his site Tuesday. The size of the attack was nearly double that of any Akamai had seen before.

    An IoT botnet generating this much traffic is a bellwether event that Ellis says will take some time to analyze to come up with more efficient mitigation tools.

    Its impact is similar to the 2010 attacks by Anonymous using the open source, low-orbit ion cannon tool, or the 2014 DDoS attacks launched from compromised Joomla and WordPress servers, he says.

    The lesson for enterprises is that the DDoS protections they have in place need to be tweaked to handle higher attack volumes, he says.

    IoT exploited

    The massive Krebs on Security assault is the work of a botnet made up primarily of internet of things devices, according to Akamai. So many devices were used, in fact, that the attacker didn’t have to employ common tactics that amplify the impact of individual devices, Ellis says.

    The number of machines in the latest botnet is still unknown, and could be as large as a million. “We’re still trying to size it,” he says. “We think that might be an overestimate but it’s also possible that will be a real estimate once we get into the numbers.”

    With estimates of 21 billion IoT devices by 2020, the scale of botnets that might be created by these relatively unprotected machines could be enormous, says Dave Lewis, a global security advocate for Akamai who spoke Thursday at the Security of Things Forum in Cambridge, Mass.

    “What if an attacker injects code into devices to create a Fitbit botnet?” he says. Researchers have already shown it’s possible to wirelessly load malware onto a Fitbit in less than 10 seconds, he says, so the possibility isn’t fantastic.

    Some of the attacking machines are running clients known to run on cameras, he says. “It’s possible they are faking it or it’s possible it’s a camera that was doing these attacks,” he says. “There are indicators that there are IoT devices here, at scale”

    The attack didn’t use reflection or amplification, so all the traffic consisted of legitimate http requests to overwhelm Krebs’s site, Ellis says. “It’s not junk traffic.”

    A lot of things about the attack are still unknown such as who’s behind it and what method the botmasters used to infect the individual bots.

    Ellis says some other providers Akamai had contacted report similar but smaller attacks likely from the same botnet. Many of them were aimed toward gaming sites, and Krebs has written about such attacks, so there may be a connection there, he says.

    Akamai will analyze the attack and devise tools to fight similar attacks, Ellis says.

    Krebs has tweeted about the attack after Akamai stopped protecting his site. “I can’t really fault Akamai for their decision. I likely cost them a ton of money today,” he wrote. “So long everyone. It’s been real.”
