Brittany Murphy: The Last Five Minutes of Her Life

Updated on February 6, 2010

 Recently, if you missed it, Larry King devoted an hour to her recent death. Her husband, Simon Monjack, a photographer, described her last five minutes of life. It was pretty amazing, yet uneventful.

Brittany was hypoglycemic, meaning, she had to eat the right foods at the right time or she would tend to get dizzy, see stars, act spacey. One can actually faint if the feelings signaling are ignored. Hypoglycemia is the body's inability to properly handle the large amounts of sugar found in just about anything. Thus, the person's blood sugar plummets to where symptoms appear and if ignored, can cause fainting.

Her husband indicated that Brittany was acting odd 10-15 minutes before. Her eyes going off in odd directions, spacey. She was lethargic, tired. She was talking with her mom and husband and then feeling not well, she went into the bathroom. Within seconds, Simon heard something and went to check and found Brittany on the floor. Her mom rushed in and held her in arms. Her mom looked at her, Brittany then said, " mom, hold me, I'm going to die". Then she passed out and Simon began CPR over and over. Her mom dialed 911 and was not able to get through immediately, minutes passed as Simon gave CPR over and over. Finally, the 911 call went through and the ambulance arrived 8-9 minutes after. Way too late. The response is usually three minutes. She was dead at the scene.

Brittany did have a benign heart murmur, many do. Usually, they cause no issues unless they simply get worse. According to tabloids and TMZ, the medications included Topamax (anti-seizure meds also to prevent migraines), Ativan (anxiety med), Biaxin (antibiotic), Methylprednisolone (anti-inflammatory), Fluoxetine (depression medication), Klonopin (anxiety med), Carbamazepine (treats Diabetic symptoms and is also a bipolar medication), Vicoprofen (pain reliever), Propranolol (hypertension, used to prevent heart attacks), and Hydrocodone (pain medication).

Simon states there was no OD of any drugs. Many of the above were in his name, not Brittany's. Some were her mom's. Simon has a heart condition. Weeks prior to this, he suffered a heart attack and was rushed to the hospital. Her mom has battled cancer twice. Since Brittany was diabetic, the only medication for it was Carbamazepine. Most of the other medications were Simon's, such as Propranolol.

Thus, the death of Brittany was natural probably compounded by her diabetes and low sugar count which might had been deadly low. Something she might not have been aware of despite the obvious symptoms that she knew well all her life.  Maybe she simply was ignoring them not realizing the real danger she was in. But it is telling what she told her mom. She knew she was going to die. Thus, within seconds of her falling and her mom holding her, something paranormal occurred, something or angel told her she was going to die and to say goodbye. This revelation does occur with those on their death beds, it is as if an angel visits them to calm their fears about dying and not to fight it. It seems when one enters a coma and returns from it while on the death bed, this happens. It happened with me and my mom. There was a sudden peace about dying when she said, "I've had a good life".
