Selma Blair had a scary outburst on a plane Monday that ended with her being taken off the flight by stretcher and rushed to the hospital, People reports. Based on photos posted on Instagram, the actress had apparently flown to Cancun, Mexico, for Father's Day weekend with her 4-year-old son, Arthur, and Arthur's dad, her ex, Jason Bleick. En route back to Los Angeles, witnesses tell TMZ, it appeared Blair was taking some sort of medication and also drinking wine before the outburst began.

"He burns my private parts. He won't let me eat or drink. He beats me. He's going to kill me," Blair reportedly said. Two nurses onboard helped her, and the pilot radioed ahead to make sure paramedics were waiting. No official word from her camp, but Bleick posted a photo of Arthur Tuesday morning captioned, "A new day & an early morning stick hunt with dad."
