Harrison Ford is reportedly in “stable condition” after crashing a small plane he was piloting.
PEOPLE reports that his plane crashed at Penmar Golf Course in Los Angeles this afternoon, and Ford – who was the only person in the plane – was rushed to the hospital.
The Los Angeles Fire Department confirmed that a small aircraft with a “70 y/o male pilot” – Ford is 72 – landed near the Santa Monica Airport.
“The single-engine aircraft suffered a medium to high impact on the grass at Penmar Golf Course. Bystanders… rendered aid to the conscious and breathing approximate 70 y/o male pilot prior to firefighters arrival,” the LAFD’s Twitter report reads.
“Firefighters provided… immediate medical aid to the patient who is now described as suffering fair to moderate injury & being treated at a local hospital.”
A family member allegedly told NBC Los Angeles that he had “suffered a few gashes,” while Santa Monica City Commissioner Phil Brock told PEOPLE that he “sustained a head injury.”
His son, Ben, tweeted:
At the hospital. Dad is ok. Battered, but ok! He is every bit the man you would think he is. He is an incredibly strong man.— Chef Ben Ford (@ChefBenFord) March 6, 2015
Thank you all for your thoughts and good vibes for my dad.— Chef Ben Ford (@ChefBenFord) March 6, 2015
