Harrison Ford had a lucky escape yesterday evening when his small plane crash-landed onto a golf course in Los Angeles.
The What Lies Beneath actor who is married to Ally McBeal star Calista Flockhart thankfully escaped largely unharmed, suffering ‘moderate injuries’ and was alert and conscious when assisted by paramedics.
His son, Ben also reassured fans that his dad was ‘battered’ but doing fine: “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.”

Harrison’s agency also released a statement regarding the incident, saying: “He had no other choice but to make an emergency landing, which he did safely. He was banged up and is in the hospital receiving medical care. The injuries sustained are not life threatening, and he is expected to make a full recovery.”
Fellow famous faces have been sending their regards to the actor.
