SAN ANTONIO -- Louise Locker, who is better known as 'Elf Louise,' underwent a heart procedure Monday morning after she reportedly suffered a heart attack on Sunday.
Radio personality Chris Duel tweeted the news about the heart attack late Sunday.
A spokeswoman for the Baptist Health System released a statement on behalf of Locker, stating "The ultimate Christmas gift will be to be healthy." Locker also thanked her supporters for their prayers and well wishes.
Locker started Elf Louise in 1969 when she collected enough gifts for children in 13 families. The project had hoped to collect 60,000 gifts this year.
