Actor Michael Clarke Duncan suffered a heart attack Friday and was rushed to a Los Angeles hospital.
According to TMZ, Duncan, 54, was given CPR and was resuscitated just before 2 a.m. by girlfriend, Omarosa Manigault. Manigault previously appeared on the show The Apprentice.
Duncan’s publicist now has more news on why the actor’s heart stopped, saying, “According to doctors, Michael Clarke Duncan suffered a myocardial infarction early this morning. He is now stable and we look forward to his full recovery.”
A myocardial infarction is, in simpler terms, a heart attack. Heart attacks occur when one or more coronary arteries become clogged.
While in the hospital, Duncan was visited by his co-star, Geoff Stults. Stults appeared on the show The Finder with Duncan. Stults didn’t have much to say, but told TMZ, "I saw him ... he's looking good ... thats all we know right now."
Duncan is best known for his starring roles in The Green Mile, Armageddon, and Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby.
