We're so glad he's on the mend!

Harrison Ford is doing okay despite being battered, according to his son Ben Ford.

The Star Wars actor crash-landed his vintage WWII plane on the Penmar golf course in Venice on Thursday.

Here's what the rep for NTSB Patrick Jones (no relation to Indiana Jones) had to say about the crash in a statement:

"At approximately 14:20 there was a vintage airplane that was taking off from Santa Monica.

The pilot reported a loss of engine power and was attempting to return to the runway. It appears he clipped the top of a tree and came to rest on the golf course.

At this time the NTSB has started an investigation with the FAA . Our goal is to do some on-scene documentation. We will ultimately recover the aircraft tomorrow morning to a local facility and continue the investigation."

He claimed that Harrison was in fact "lucky," while mentioning that there are over 2,000 aviation accidents a year, and that some result in fatalities, and that some don't.

Prior to the press release golf course employee Howard Tabe spoke about seeing the accident, saying:

"There was blood all over his face… Two very fine doctors were treating him, taking good care of him. I helped put a blanket under his hip."

We wish Indy a speedy recovery!
