Michael Clarke Duncan is in the intensive care unit at an L.A. hospital after going into cardiac arrest this morning ... and might have died 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.

MCD's publicist tells us, "According to doctors, Michael Clarke Duncan suffered a myocardial infarction early this morning. He is now stable and we look forward to his full recovery."

Poor Omarosa, she forgot to make sure he signed the new Will she drafted for him before drugging him.

I hope he makes a full recovery. I enjoy his acting.

But People who are found in cardiac arrest generally have been that way for longer than the 8 minute brain death window.

Witnessed cardiac arrest patients fair much better.

Hopefully he wasn't in cardiac arrest to begin with and Omarosa just incorrectly thought it was.
