Carrie Fisher suffered a "massive heart attack" onboard a flight Friday afternoon, TMZ reports.

The 60-year-old actress reportedly went into cardiac arrest as the transatlantic flight from London approached LAX. According to fellow passengers, Fisher "stopped breathing" for ten minutes and a doctor and nurse onboard administered CPR until the flight landed and EMTs could rush her to the hospital.

Fisher was in the UK for an appearance on the Graham Norton Show, where she talked about her new memoir, The Princess Diarist, and the affair she had with Harrison Ford on the set of Star Wars.
