Harrison Ford is in serious condition after crash landing a plane in Venice, Calif. on Thursday, sources confirm.
The 72-year-old crash landed on Penmar Golf Course after something apparently went wrong mechanically with the single-engine plane at around 2:25 p.m. He was transferred to a Los Angeles hospital. The actor was the only one aboard the plane and the only person who sustained injuries.
Ford reportedly walked away from the crash, and was later attended to by two physicians who were on the scene. He suffered multiple lacerations from the accident.
“There was blood all over his face,” Howard Tabe, an employee at the Penmar Golf Course, told NBC News. “Two very fine doctors were treating him, taking good care of him. I helped put a blanket under his hip.”
Ford is an avid pilot, with a license to fly helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft, and has crashed in the past.
TMZ was the first to report the news about Ford.
