He’s not just a hero in his action films, he’s one in real life. Actor Harrison Ford, 72, saved his life and that of others yesterday. He was flying a small vintage plane in Venice, California on Thursday afternoon when the engine failed. He managed to fly the plane to Penmar golf course and made a crash landing there to avoid human casualty. He was the only person in the plane at the time of the crash.
The experienced pilot, who has been flying since the 60s, sustained head wounds and bled profusely. He was transported to the UCLA trauma centre where he’s currently receiving treatment for injuries he sustained from the crash. His son, Ben Ford later tweeted to fans to assure them that his dad is ok
“At the hospital. Dad is ok. Battered, but ok! He is every bit the man you would think he is. He is an incredibly strong man.’
The fact that he escaped the crash with just a few injuries is not surprising to those who have flown with him. They say he’s a great pilot. See photos from the crash after the cut..
