In an interview with The Daily Beast, Brittany Murphy’s husband Simon Monjack talks about the morning that Brittany died last December.
In the four page interview TheDailyBeast.com, Monjack talks about Brittany’s last moments:
“I came running in. I immediately started doing CPR.”
“I felt a tiny heart beat,” Monjack said, his voice cracking over the phone. “I was pushing with the heel of my hand. And every second I pushed, I felt my hand become stronger and her heart weaker. And then it stopped. And I kept pushing. She died in my arms. I knew she was dead.”
Monjack has also recently announced that he plans to sue Warner Brothers Studios in a wrongful death lawsuit, saying that their termination of Brittany in the Happy Feet sequel just weeks before her death caused the heart attack that killed her.
Personally I don’t see that he’s really got a case there, but I guess time will tell.
Brittany and Simon had been married for two years before her death in December 2009.
