On Thursady, March 5, actor Harrison Ford was injured when he brought his plane down on a golf course. Now a witness to the crash claims that the actor has actually saved several lives by crashing on a course instead of a crowded area nearby.
Eddie Aguglia told NBC News that she was playing a round when the actor brought the plane down:
“Looking at where he crashed and how the plane went down, I’m sure there was a moment where he said, ‘I’m not going to risk lives, whatever happens, happens. It’s going to be just me.”
The 72-year-old actor suffered “moderate” injuries after crashing the vintage two-seater plane he was piloting on to a green at Penmar golf course on Thursday afternoon.
A representative for Ford came out with a statement.
“Harrison was flying a WW2 vintage plane today which stalled upon takeoff. He had no other choice but to make an emergency landing, which he did safely. The injuries sustained are not life-threatening, and he is expected to make a full recovery.”
