Disney: GUILTY to criminal charges after Harrison Ford’s on set injury


A subsidiary company of Disney has pleaded guilty to two criminal charges after Harrison Ford broke his leg while filming Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

While filming the movie in 2014, the actor was crushed by a hydraulic door on the set of the Millennium Falcon at the Pinewood Studios in the UK.

Harrison had to be air-lifted to hospital and underwent surgery on his leg, after the prop, that supposedly weighs as much as a small car, trapped him.

Filming on the set of Star Wars had to be postponed for three weeks due to the incident.

According to the BBC, the UK's HSE tired to incriminate the production company with four criminal charges, but Production Ltd only pleaded guilty to two Heath & Safety charges at Aylesbury Crown Court today.

Sentencing will take place on August 22.
