I gotta remember to add Harrison Ford to my celebrity death pool.
Harrison Ford was the pilot who was injured after a small World War II-era plane he was flying crashed at a city golf course in Venice Thursday afternoon, a source close to the Ford family told KTLA. Ford, a 72-year-old longtime aviator, was going into surgery for broken bones in his ankle and pelvis, the source said about four hours after the crash was reported — shortly before 2:30 p.m..Ford’s son tweeted about 5 p.m. that he was with his father at the hospital. “At the hospital. Dad is ok. Battered, but ok!” Ben Ford wrote. “He is every bit the man you would think he is. He is an incredibly strong man.”…“He had no other choice but to make an emergency landing, which he did safely,” Treciokas (Ford’s publicist) said. “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.”
Look, it would suck if Harrison Ford died, but this plane looks like something he stole from a museum. Not sure Indiana Jones would appreciate that. Plus, dude is 72. I’d feel more comfortable if he crashed one of those motorized carts from Wal-Mart. I’d also feel better if he lost his earring in the crash.
