Harrison Ford was seriously injured on Thursday afternoon after the plane he was flying crashed at a golf course in Venice, California after takeoff from the Santa Monica airport.
Ford’s son, Ben took to Twitter following the crash to share with fans that his father is doing well.
“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,” Ben wrote. “Thank you all for your thoughts and good vibes for my dad.”
The two-seater, single engine plane Ford was flying went down after reported engine failure. The “Star Wars” actor was conscious and breathing when rescue crews reached him, but suffered lacerations to his head and scraped arms.
Ford’s rep released a statement stating that the 72-year-old “Star Wars” actor “was flying a WW2 vintage plane today which had engine trouble upon take off. He had no other choice but to make an emergency landing, which he did safely.”
We are glad Ford is doing well.
