Carrie Fisher reportedly suffered a heart attack on a plane Friday, according to TMZ.

Airport police confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter units were responding to someone with a medical emergency on a plane, but they could not identify the victim, officer Alicia Hernandez said.

Police were radioed for help around 1 p.m. she said.

Several passengers who were on the United plane traveling from London to LAX took to Twitter to say the 60-year-old Star Wars star was taken off the plane by EMTs after staff and passengers attempted to revive her while the aircraft landed.

A rep did not immediately respond to THR's request for comment.

William Shatner asked his followers to "send special thoughts" to Fisher and Rogue One: A Stars Wars story writer Gary Whitta tweeted, "Thoughts, hopes, and the Force are with you."

The news was first reported by TMZ.
