Charmed actress Alyssa Milano has shared a message from her uncle Mitch, in an update on his health following a ‘terrifying’ car crash.

The pair were involved in a collision in Los Angeles last month, when her uncle Mitch had a heart attack at the wheel.

The #MeToo activist was unharmed in the accident however police performed CPR on Mitch, with Alyssa later saying he may never recover after he was placed in intensive care.

Sharing an update to her Instagram on Tuesday, the actress shared some positive news with followers.

In a video message, she said: ‘So many of you have reached out to show their love and support and sent their prayers. So I thought you would like this update.

‘Listen carefully.’

She then shared a voice note from Mitch which said: ‘It’s about 12 O’clock. And I want to thank you for saving me and I should be getting out of here soon. I love you.’

The star’s followers celebrated the good news, with David Arquette sharing a series of heart emoji, while Debra Messing wrote: ‘Oh Alyssa that’s the best news EVER!!!!!!!!’

After the car crash on the 405 freeway in Los Angeles in August, the actress praised the police officers, doctors and nurses who helped both her and her uncle, who she described as ‘such an important part of our family’.

‘Yesterday, my family suffered a terrifying and traumatic event,’ she began. ‘I was a passenger in a car my Uncle Mitch was driving when he suffered a serious heart attack, resulting in a car crash.

‘I am grateful to the people who stopped to help us.

‘I’ll never be able to thank them enough for the care and attention they, along with the first responders, doctors, nurses, and staff at UCLA Medical Center paid to him and to me.’

She went on: ‘Uncle Mitch is such an important part of our family. He’s with us every day, spending time with my children and present in every meaningful part of our lives.

‘He’s still in the hospital, and we are unsure if he will recover.’

Asking for privacy at a difficult time, Alyssa added: ‘Please, take this as your inspiration to get CPR certified. You don’t know when you’ll be called upon to save a life.

‘The American Red Cross and many hospitals and other organisations offer regular classes. It’s such a small effort and can have a huge impact.’
