Carrie Fisher suffered a massive heart attack on a flight.

The Star Wars actress, 60, was flying from London to Los Angeles when she went into cardiac arrest. According to actress Anna Akana who was on the flight, certain passengers onboard administered CPR. An EMT also happened to be on the flight and helped carry out life-saving measures. The health scare occurred about 15 minutes before the plane was scheduled to land. As soon as it touched ground an ambulance transported Fisher to a nearby hospital.

E! News has reached out to Fisher’s rep for comment. 

In recent weeks Fisher had been promoting her new memoir, The Princess Diarist. In it, she confirmed she and Harrison Ford had an affair. She also couldn’t believe how shocked people were by the news.

“I am surprised at the reaction,” she told Savannah Guthrie in an interview on Today. “I don’t think it’s that surprising.”

She added, “A lot of the fans did think about it for a while. They made up Carrison as a word.”

Although Ford was, at the time, married to Mary Marquardt and had two children, Fisher wrote in her memoir that his marriage ended “for reasons having nothing whatsoever to do with me.”

Their relationship ended when filming wrapped, but Fisher still looks back on their time together quite fondly. “I was so inexperienced, but I trusted something about him,” she said. “He was kind.”
