In an interview with the New York times, Judith Hill opened up about Prince's emergency plane landing which took place six days before his death. Hill was one of two other passengers on the plane and she got into detail about how she would have thought the late icon was asleep had she not seen his face. "His eyes fixed," she said, before he nodded off. Judith reportedly alerted the other passenger. "We knew it was only a matter of time; we had to get down," she said. "We didn't have anything on the plane to help him."

Following the emergency landing, Prince was carried to the ambulance, where he received a shot of Narcan, which is typically used to treat opioid overdoses. On his hospital bed, Prince told Hill that, "It’s only by God’s grace that I’m even here. I had to fight for my life. I remember hearing your voices from afar and saying to myself, “Follow the voices, follow the voices, get back in your body, you gotta to do this.” And he said it was the hardest thing he’d ever done, to get back into his body like that."
