Alyssa Milano said her Uncle Mitch is on life support after suffering a major heart attack while the two were driving last week, resulting in a scary car crash.

"It was some of the most horrifying moments of my life," Milano said Monday on TikTok, recalling how her uncle had lost consciousness with his foot on the gas.

The "Charmed" alum also sent a "special thank you" the "incredibly kind people" who stopped to help her in the aftermath of the accident, encouraging others to help out when they see people in need.

"He is on life support," she explained, noting that Mitch is "still in and out of consciousness" in the hospital. "My brother went there yesterday and played him some oldies and his whole body started moving, so he really loved that."

"The nurses at the UCLA Medical Center and the doctors are taking such incredible care of Uncle Mitch, but he's got a long road ahead of him," Milano continued. "He spiked a fever last night of 103, so we think that there is an infection that he is also beating throughout all of this."

She called her uncle "a fighter" and that "the doctors say that every day is a miracle that he still hangs on."

After thanking fans for their concern, the 48-year-old activist once again urged them to learn CPR.

"Please, please, please get trained in CPR," she said. "You could be called upon to save a life at some point, and it's really, really valuable to know how to do that."
