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."

the only good thing that Omarosa has done that I've ever heard of..and at the right time!
...
sadly because I've seen what a liar she is (on Celebrity Apprentice) a part of me can not help wodner if she really did this
if paramedics arrived to see it happening that is one thing
but if it's only her word- like the boy who cried wolf- I'm hesitant to believe her
...
either way I'm relieved he is OK and hopefully they'll get to the cause so he will have a long and healthy life
