Tributes are pouring in after Lisa Marie Presley, the only child of Elvis Presley, died at the age of 54.

The musician died at a Los Angeles hospital after suffering a medical emergency at home, just two days after she attended the Golden Globes.

In a statement, the Presley family said: “Priscilla Presley and the Presley family are shocked and devastated by the tragic death of their beloved Lisa Marie.

“They are profoundly grateful for the support, love and prayers of everyone, and ask for privacy during this very difficult time.”

Presley was transported from her home in Calabasas, California, to hospital after paramedics performed CPR on her following a possible cardiac arrest, TMZ first reported.

Following in the footsteps of her father, Presley pursued a career in the music industry.

She released three albums: “To Whom It May Concern” (2003), “Now What” (2005), and “Storm & Grace” (2012).

In 2018, her new record “Where No One Stands Alone” featured 14 original performances recorded by Elvis including a reimagined duet, in which she sang alongside her father – who died at the age of 42 in 1977.

We must be careful with information on ‘sudden deaths’, Saralyn Mark, MD, writes for The Independent

18:45 , Tom Murray

In an op-ed for The Independent, Saralyn Mark, MD, writes that accurate information is more important than ever after conspiracy theorists falsely attempted to link Presley’s death to vaccines.

“These tragic scenarios illustrate the misinformation, disinformation and just plain confusion which has clouded our lives during the past three years,” she writes.

“While there have been reports that mRNA vaccines and Covid-19 infections can lead to cardiac complications, one study’s lead author stresses that, ‘the risk of myocarditis following Covid-19 vaccination was quite small compared to the risk of myocarditis after Covid-19 infection’.

In another study, published in Frontiers in Cardiovascular Medicine in August 2022, researchers found that the risk of myocarditis is more than seven-fold higher in persons who were infected with SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes Covid-19, than those who were vaccinated.”

She added: “It’s a real choice to keep going, one that I have to make every single day and one that is constantly challenging to say the least… But I keep going for my girls.”
