Harrison Ford Injured While Filming Star Wars Movie
Peter Donnell / 5 years ago
Delays have hit the new Star Wars movie after one of the movies leading stars was injured by a falling hydraulic door. Harrison Ford was crushed under a falling door from the Millennium Falcon space ship set while working on the new movie. The accident left him clutching his chest as he was stretchered onto a helicopter and air lifted to hospital for further treatment.
Fortunately for Harrison and his fans, the injuries don’t appear as bad as everyone thought, although it is currently believed that Mr Ford, now 71 years old, has suffered a fractured ankle although results of further tests are still pending. This injury will no doubt set back his schedule for the movie, and as a result the entire cast was send home for the rest of the day.
A spokeswoman for South Central Ambulance Service said: “We were called at 4.24pm to Pinewood to reports of a 71-year-old male who had sustained an injury to his ankle from a door that had fallen.”
Obviously someone in charge of safety on the set really screwed up, but of course sometimes accidents do happen no matter how many precautions you take. The film is still scheduled for December 2015, and fans are no doubt eager to see Mr Ford make a speedy recovery and return to set.
