Debbie Reynolds died after she was rushed to the hospital Wednesday, her son told the Associated Press. She was 84.
It’s been a tragic week for the iconic Hollywood family. Reynolds lost her daughter, Carrie Fisher, on Tuesday. Fisher died at a Los Angeles hospital days after suffering a heart attack on a plane last week. She was 60.
TMZ was the first to report the news, saying Reynolds was at her son Todd Fisher’s home in Beverly Hills planning her daughter’s funeral and may have suffered a stroke. The outlet reported Reynolds has been distraught since Fisher’s health declined last Friday.
The Los Angeles Times also reported Reynolds was rushed to the hospital, adding that she complained of breathing problems.
The Los Angeles Fire Department confirmed they responded to a call for medical assistance from a house on Coldwater Canyon Drive in Beverly Hills (because the LAFD’s station was closer) shortly after 1 p.m. local time. LAFD spokeswoman Margaret Stewart told USA TODAY that an “adult female” in “fair to serious condition” was transported to Cedars Sinai Hospital, the closest to the address.
Because of a federal privacy law, emergency services can’t identify patients.
USA TODAY has reached out to representatives for Reynolds; her 24-year-old granddaughter, Billie Lourd; and Joely Fisher, Carrie Fisher’s half-sister.
