The 60-year-old Star Wars actress was rushed to the hospital after the medical crisis on United Airlines flight from London to Los Angeles, and her uncle, Bill Reynolds expressed his shock about the news.
"Heavens, I am surprised of course," Fisher's maternal uncle, the brother of her mother, Debbie Reynolds, exclusively told RadarOnline.com.
"She's been fine, traveling the world doing Star Wars stuff."
Reynolds told RadarOnline.com that the news hit him hard.
"All that travel who knows what will grab you — this is horrible."
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, United revealed they had an "unresponsive customer onboard" and had "medical officials respond to the incident at the gate."
A witness on the plane, actress Anna Akana, described Fisher's distressing condition.
