Debbie Reynolds was reportedly rushed to the hospital on Wednesday afternoon, one day after the death of her daughter, Carrie Fisher, according to TMZ.
The L.A. Fire Department confirmed to Variety that it received a call for a medical emergency in the 1700 block of Coldwater Canyon Drive at 1:02 p.m. An adult female patient was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in fair-to-serious condition, said spokeswoman Margaret Stewart, who declined to confirm the identity of the patient due to federal privacy law. She may have suffered a stroke, reports TMZ.
This news comes after Fisher died Tuesday morning from what was described as a massive heart attack on Friday while on a flight from London to Los Angeles.
Reynolds posted a short message regarding her daughter online on Tuesday. “Thank you to everyone who has embraced the gifts and talents of my beloved and amazing daughter. I am grateful for your thoughts and prayers that are now guiding her to her next stop. Love Carrie’s Mother,” she wrote.
Born in 1932, Reynolds is known for, among many other roles, her part in the 1952 film “Singin’ in the Rain.” She was nominated for an Academy Awards for 1964’s “The Unsinkable Molly Brown.” Reynolds earned a Tony nomination for her performance in the Broadway revival of “Irene,” which also gave Fisher her Broadway debut. George S. Irving, Reynolds’ Tony-winning co-star in the show died on Monday.
A new documentary, “Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds,” is slated to screen at the upcoming Palm Springs Film Festival after showing at the Cannes and New York Film Festivals.
Joely Fisher, half-sister to Carrie, tweeted a photo of herself and Reynolds with the caption “God speed mama.”
