Harrison Ford is “battered, but ok” after crash landing his vintage two-seater plane on a Venice golf course Thursday afternoon, his son Ben Ford wrote on Twitter.
The 72-year-old actor was flying his single-engine plane out of the Santa Monica Municipal Airport, but immediately after takeoff he reported that the engine had failed.
He crash landed around the eighth hole at the Penmar Golf Course and was treated by two doctors who happened to be there. They treated his head wounds until emergency personnel arrived.
“Harrison was flying a WW2 vintage plane today which had engine trouble upon take off. He had no other choice but to make an emergency landing, which he did safely,” Ford’s publicist said in a statement.
“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.”
Though it was first reported that he was in critical condition, Ford is in stable condition and is expected to make a full recovery. (RELATED: Harrison Ford Hospitalized After Plane Crash)
