Actress Carrie Fisher has been hospitalized after reportedly suffering a massive heart attack.

TMZ reports that Fisher went into cardiac arrest while aboard a plane traveling from London to LAX.

An EMT on the United Airlines plane reportedly performed CPR on Fisher, who was sitting in first class.

After the plane landed in Los Angeles around noon on Thursday, the 60-year-old was transported to a nearby hospital. She is reportedly in critical condition, according to Variety.

United Airlines released a statement after news broke about her hospitalization, saying, “Medical personnel met United flight 935 from London to Los Angeles upon arrival today after the crew reported that a passenger was unresponsive. Our thoughts are with our customer at this time and any requests for additional information should be directed to local authorities.”

A few passengers, who were on Carrie's flight, also took to social media to share what they saw. YouTuber Anna Anka tweeted, “Don’t know how else to process this but Carrie Fisher stopped breathing on the flight home. Hope she’s gonna be OK. So many thanks to the United flight crew who jumped into action, and the awesome doctor and nurse passengers who helped."

Comedian Brad Gage added, "I'm in complete shock. @AnnaAkana and I sat in front of Carrie Fisher on our flight from London and she was just taken off the plane by EMTs."

Fisher is the daughter of screen legend Debbie Reynolds, 84, and the late singer Eddie Fisher.
