Harrison Ford’s Son: Dad Is ‘Battered, But OK’ After Plane Crash

”He is every bit the man you would think he is,“ Ben Ford shares on Twitter

Harrison Ford‘s son Ben has taken to Twitter to share a status update after the actor survived a plane crash on Thursday.

“At the hospital. Dad is ok. Battered, but ok!” the younger Ford, a chef and restaurateur, shared on Twitter. “He is every bit the man you would think he is. He is an incredibly strong man.”

“Thank you all for your thoughts and good vibes for my dad,” he added.

The “Indiana Jones” star is in “fair to moderate” condition after crashing his plane at the Penmar Golf Course in Venice, California Thursday.

The 72-year-old actor had been flying a World War II training plane, a Ryan Aeronautical model ST3KR, built in 1942.

No one on the ground was injured, but witnesses reported that Ford had scratches on his head.

During a press conference following the crash, Patrick Butler, 11th district chief for the Los Angeles Fire Department, said that Ford — who Butler did not identify by name — was “initially rescued by some bystanders who were here on the golf course” and was transported to a local hospital “in fair to moderate condition.”

Butler added that Ford had suffered “moderate trauma, and he was alert and conscious.”

Beatrice Girmala of the Los Angeles Police Department told reporters that the Federal Aviation Administration is coordinating the investigation and is in communication with the National Transportation Safety Board.

Ford’s agency United Talent declined to comment to TheWrap. A spokeswoman for Ford has not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.
