Vasquez and a bodyguard, who were seated in first class, rushed to the man’s side. The famed attorney contacted her brother-in-law, who is a doctor, and he guided her through checking his vitals, while the bodyguard used his Apple Watch to monitor the patient’s heart rate, according to the gossip site.

The flight returned to LAX due to the customer’s medical emergency, a spokesperson for American Airlines told Fox News Digital.

Meanwhile, Depp’s lawyer Ben Chew, and Heard’s attorney, Elaine Bredehoft, were in Fairfax County Circuit Court Friday morning to enter a judgement order outlining the jury’s June 1 verdict. 

The panel awarded Depp $10.35 million in damages finding that Heard had defamed him by writing an op-ed in the Washington Post identifying herself as a domestic abuse victim.

Depp is also on the hook for $2 million for defaming Heard in comments his attorney, Adam Waldman, made to the press.

Heard’s team has said she intends to appeal. “As stated in yesterday’s congressional hearings, you don’t ask for a pardon if you are innocent. And, you don’t decline to appeal if you know you are right,” spokesperson for the actress said after the brief hearing.
