UPDATE #3: Ben Ford, Harrison’s son, sent the following message from the hospital:
“Dad is okay, battered but okay. He is every bit the man you would think he is. He is an incredibly strong man.”
UPDATE #2: NBC Los Angeles spoke with a family member who said that the actor has a few gashes, but is fine.
UPDATE: The Los Angeles Fire Department’s Patrick Butler has given a press conference, stating:
“The patient was in moderate condition, alert, conscious and breathing.“
Harrison Ford was piloting a small plane on Thursday when he somehow lost control and crash-landed on Penmar Golf Course in Venice at around 2:20 p.m.
The vintage yellow and silver WWII aircraft was totaled while the 72-year-old actor reportedly suffered gashes on his head.
Harrison was the only passenger.
Since it was a golf course, there were obviously two doctors playing a round who were able to treat Harrison at the scene before he was transported to nearby Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center.
