Coroner's officials ruled Fisher died from sleep apnea and a combination of other factors.

Woman (63) collapsed due to dehydration after using sauna

  Woman (63) collapsed due to dehydration after using sauna Dehydration was a factor in the death of a 63-year-old woman who collapsed after using the sauna. Elizabeth Mullen from Lombard Court, City Quay, Dublin 2 was a regular user of the pool, sauna and steam room at Club Vitae Health and Fitness in Dublin’s Docklands. Mrs Mullen went to aqua aerobics at the club three times per week, her long term partner Walter Kelly told the court.“She would spend about three hours there. She would go to the sauna and steam room and then join the other woman in the pool. It was a regular thing for her,” Mr Kelly said.

Coroner’s officials ruled Fisher died from sleep apnea and a combination of other factors. A news release issued Friday mentioned drugs were found in Fisher’s system, but it did not provide details.

Monday’s full report contains a detailed explanation of the results, such as why investigators believe Fisher took cocaine at least three days before her flight.

“At this time the significance of cocaine cannot be established in this case,” the report states.

It also states that while heroin is detectable in the system for a briefer period of time, investigators could not determine when Fisher took it or the ecstasy.

“Ms. Fisher suffered what appeared to be a cardiac arrest on the airplane accompanied by vomiting and with a history of sleep apnea. Based on the available toxicological information, we cannot establish the significance of the multiple substances that were detected in Ms. Fisher’s blood and tissue, with regard to the cause of death,” the report states.

A coroner 's report released Monday, June 19, 2017, shows that Fisher had cocaine , ecstasy and heroin in her system w A news release issued Friday mentioned drugs were found in Fisher ' s system , but it did not provide details.

A coroner ' s report showed Carrie Fisher had cocaine , ecstasy and heroin in her system when she fell ill on a London to Los Angeles flight in December 2016.

Among the factors that contributed to Fisher’s death was buildup of fatty tissue in the walls of her arteries, the coroner’s office said last week.

A phone message left for Fisher’s brother, Todd, was not immediately returned.

Todd Fisher said Friday he was not surprised that drugs may have contributed to his sister’s death.

“I would tell you, from my perspective that there’s certainly no news that Carrie did drugs,” Todd Fisher said. He noted that his sister wrote extensively about her drug use, and that many of the drugs she took were prescribed by doctors to try to treat her mental health conditions.

Fisher long battled drug addiction and mental illness. She said she smoked pot at 13, used LSD by 21 and was diagnosed with bipolar disorder at 24. She was treated with electroshock therapy and medication.

“I am not shocked that part of her health was affected by drugs,” Todd Fisher said.

He said his sister’s heart condition was probably worsened by her smoking habit, as well as the medications she took. “If you want to know what killed her, it’s all of it,” he said.
