On Thursday night, actor Harrison Ford was piloting an old World War II era plane, when it crashed on a golf course. The 72 year-old actor was sent to the hospital last night and according to his son, he is OK and expected to make a full recovery.
Ford, reported there his plane was experiencing engine trouble after his take of from Santa Monica Municipal airport. He asked to immediately return and fell short of the runway, chipping a tree before he finally crashed on the golf course.
Luckily, spine surgeon Sanjay Khurana, was playing and was able to keep Ford stable until ambulances could arrive. “As a surgeon, I’ve been practicing for almost over a decade now, you deal with urgent situations. So you have to do your best for someone in distress.”
Ford is said to have chosen his crash sight to reduce the number of lost lives. A suberb was near by but he chose to avoid it. “Looking at where he crashed and how the plane went down, I’m sure there was a moment where he said, ‘I’m not going to risk lives, whatever happens, happens. It’s going to be just me,’” said 47-year-old camera assistant Eddie Aguglia, who was playing a round of golf at the time.
Notorious for his role in “Star Wars” as Han Solo, and Indian Jones as Professor Jones, Ford is an iconic A-list Hollywood heartthrob of several generations. Many love him, and we are sure he knows.
