Angelina Jolie suffers health scare at 20,000 feet

Angelina JolieAngelina Jolie suffered a terrifying health scare 20,000 feet in the air - and collapsed in her plane seat, according to U.S. reports.

Jolie was on the last leg of an 18-hour journey from Iraq home to L.A. when someone sitting close to her insists she went through the terrifying scare.

And she was reportedly given oxygen when she landed before medics gave her the go-ahead to leave.

The reports are all the more alarming because Jolie is widely reported to be at least three-months pregnant with twins.

"She started to get swollen ankles and nosebleeds and started having leg cramps," the onlooker told Life & Style magazine in the U.S.

"She fainted into her seat."

She was encouraged to get out of the pane for a break on her journey, with the option of it landing an hour north of L.A.

"Angie said no - she didn't want any more delays," the insider said. "She said she'd promised her kids she'd be home to make them lunch."

According to Life & Style, Angie has been worried about her health - but is refusing to slow down. "She refuses to let fatigue dictate her schedule," a friend told the magazine.

"She reminds herself that there are pregnant women who work in fields for 10 hours a day, an then she feels guilty for even thinking about complaining."
