Lisa Marie Presley, singer and only child of Elvis, has died at 54 after being hospitalized for cardiac arrest, her mother Priscilla Presley said.
“It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us,” Priscilla Presley said in a statement Thursday evening. “She was the most passionate, strong and loving woman I have ever known.”
Sgt. Sean Maloney of the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Office says that deputies responded to a call at the 5900 block of Normandy Drive in Calabasas at about 10:40 a.m. Thursday at the request of Los Angeles County Fire Department. The call involved a female in cardiac arrest.
Fire personnel were able to get a pulse and the woman was transported to West Hills Hospital, according to Maloney.
A fire department representative told The Post they were dispatched at 10:37 a.m. and arrived at 10:43 a.m., and a female patient — reported to be 55 — was transported at 11:17 a.m.
A source told TMZ that Elvis and Priscilla Presley’s daughter — who turns 55 on Feb. 1 — went into “full arrest,” and Lisa’s ex-husband, Danny Keough, who reportedly lives with Lisa, performed CPR until paramedics arrived. Rescue workers reportedly “administered epinephrine at the scene at least one time in order to help Presley regain a pulse,” according to the site.
Lisa Marie and Priscilla Presley walked the Golden Globes carpet and were at the “Elvis” table Tuesday night to see Austin Butler win the Golden Globe for best lead actor in a drama. Butler thanked the two women during his emotional acceptance speech.
