Michael Clarke Duncan is recovering in an L.A. hospital after going into cardiac arrest. The outcome may have been different if not for the swift action of his girlfriend Omarosa Manigault.
TMZ has learned ... Omarosa discovered the "Green Mile" actor in a state of cardiac arrest just before 2:00 AM.
We're told Omarosa performed CPR and was able to resuscitate the 54-year-old.
MCD was transported to a nearby hospital where he was immediately admitted to the ICU.
Sources tell us ... Duncan's heart rate is now stable and Omarosa is by his side. Doctors are performing tests to figure out why the actor's heart stopped in the first place. We look forward to his full recovery.
