Doctor playing golf as aircraft crash-landed has told how he helped the star...
The Star Wars and Indiana Jones star reportedly suffered a “huge gash” to his head after an engine failure forced him to crash land his small aircraft on a golf course.
TMZ posted a video of the moments before the crash, where an eyewitness can be heard saying: “Look! he’s gliding in! I hope he’s going to make it!”
Another video, obtained by Associated Press, shows bystanders running to the site of the crash after realising it had crash landed on the course.
One of the first on the scene to tend to the actor was spinal surgeon Sanjay Khurana, who spoke to ABC News following the incident
Khurana was playing a round of golf when he rushed to Ford’s aid.
“He’s obviously an iconic individual, and when he laid there as I was trying to check his airway and check his blood pressure, it was obvious by his face it was Harrison Ford,” he explained in the interview which aired on Good Morning America, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter.
“I stabilized his neck, which is a common area of injury. He was obviously moaning and in pain. And my task, if you will, was to get him out of the airplane in a semi-urgent manner because the fuel was leaking.
“He appeared to be conversant. He was oriented. And he was a little shaken up as you would imagine, but he was intact.
“Generally, considering the trauma, he looked pretty good.
“I knew he was hurt, obviously, but the fuel kind of made it kind of more urgent,” he added, confirming that the Hollywood icon is “very lucky” to be alive.
