How did Carrie Fisher die?

According to TMZ, the late Star Wars actress did not suffer a heart attack but instead passed away after suffering cardiac arrest, meaning her heart stopped beating.

Carrie was reportedly placed on a ventilator as soon as she arrived at UCLA Medical Center after the in-flight medical emergency.

    While it is the terminal event, we all die as a result of cardiac arrest and is therefore a useless thing to place on a death certificate or state as a cause of death. As such, cardiac arrest is NOT considered to be listed a cause of death. What is placed as a cause of death is what caused the cardiac arrest, what chain of events/illness/etc led to it.
