    Carrie Fisher suffered a massive heart attack Friday on an airplane ... TMZ has learned.

    Our sources say Carrie was on a flight from London to LAX when she went into cardiac arrest. People on board were administering CPR.

    We're told the emergency occurred 15 minutes before the plane landed in L.A. A flight attendant asked if there were any medical personnel on board and an EMT who was sitting in the back of the plane came up to first class and administered life-saving measures.

    The plane landed just after noon in L.A. and paramedics rushed her to a nearby hospital.

    2016 might go down as one of the worst years ever.

    She's only 60... of course the drug abuse didn't help any.

    :( The Force will be with her. Always.

    Thoroughly rotten news. Can't wait to see the end of 2016.

    Utterly gutted when I saw this on the Star Wars board I frequent a few minutes ago. :(
    Rest in Peace Ms. Fisher.

    Drug addiction and lifestyle choices have taken many talented people early in their lives. This is very sad indeed.

    Sad.

    The UK Press reported she was 15 minutes without a pulse on the plane. Ain't no coming back from that.

    Is this the Chinese year of the Reaper?

    Carrie Fisher, the actress who brought Princess Leia to life and reprised the role in last year's The Force Awakens, has died at the age of 60.

    May the Force be with you.

    It's been a bad week for celeb deaths. Rick Parfitt, George Michael, and now Carrie Fisher. They all had one thing in common though. They all abused drink and drugs. They ain't good for ya.

    RIP Carrie, my first screen crush x

    Yeah, I wonder if the increase of celebrity deaths is due to the extreme lifestyle of the entertainment scene post-1960's.

    Plenty of celebrities died young in the 70's and 80's (and the 60's for that matter). We all seem to be getting older, and our childhood heroes aren't lasting as long as they should be!

    I remember Mickey Mantle saying that had he knew he was going to live as long as he did, he would have treated his body better.

    When you're young, and rich, and famous, it's easy to think you'll live forever. No matter what you do to yourself.

    But, man, 2016 has been unkind.
