2016 is just not giving up.

Known as Princess Leia in the classic film Star Wars, Carrie Fisher has reportedly passed away at the age of 60. The veteran actress died on Tuesday morning after suffering a heart attack while on a flight from London to LAX.

According to TMZ:

Fisher was on a flight from London to LAX Friday when she suffered the heart attack 15 minutes before landing. People on the plane tell TMZ she appeared lifeless.

A passenger who’s an EMT performed CPR on Carrie and once the flight landed, paramedics rushed her to UCLA Medical Center where she remained in intensive care until her death.

The family had said she was in “stable condition” but we’re told she was not responsive after her medical emergency.

Harrison Ford tells People:

“Carrie was one-of-a-kind… brilliant, original. Funny and emotionally fearless. She lived her life, bravely. My thoughts are with her daughter Billie, her mother Debbie, her brother Todd, and her many friends. We will all miss her.”

Many celebs showed love to Carrie on social media due to her passing, including a statement from director George Lucas, Ellen DeGeneres. Madonna and more:
