UPDATE: Harrison Ford’s publicist Ina Treciokas issued a statement, which reads, “Harrison was flying a WW2 vintage plane today, which had engine trouble upon take off. He had no other choice but to make an emergency landing, which he did safely. 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.”

    Who wrote this article? I doesn’t even make sense. The “sole male occupant” was “critically injured,” but Harrison Ford suffered only a few gashes and his son tweets he is okay?
