Carrie Fisher‘s condition is still unknown.

Her brother, Todd Fisher, has spoken to Entertainment Tonight, saying she remains in the Intensive Care Unit of the UCLA Medical Center following a heart attack she had aboard a flight on Friday.

“She is in the intensive care unit, she is being well looked after,” Todd told the publication. “If everyone could just pray for her that would be good. The doctors are doing their thing and we don’t want to bug them. We are waiting by patiently.”

At this moment, he could not give an update regarding her condition. “We don’t know. We hope for the best,” he said. “We certainly do not know her condition, that’s why she is in ICU. I’m sure everyone wants to speculate, but now is not the time for that.”

Carrie was transported to the UCLA medical center on Friday afternoon after she went into cardiac arrest during a flight from London to Los Angeles, about 15 minutes before the plane was scheduled to land.

Upon reaching L.A., paramedics were on standby at the gate and provided advanced life support and aggressive treatment before transporting her to the hospital, the L.A. City Fire Department told E! News.

Actress Anna Akana was on the flight and tweeted about the tragic turn of events. She said certain passengers onboard administered CPR, and an EMT also happened to be on the flight, doing what they all could do to carry out life-saving measures.

“Don’t know how else to process this but Carrie Fisher stopped breathing on the flight home,” Akana tweeted. “Hope she’s gonna be OK.”
