Harrison Ford 'on the mend'

HARRISON Ford is "on the mend" following his plane crash last Thursday.
His son Ben took to his Twitter account to let his followers know of the good news, whilst also thanking them for their well wishes.

He wrote: "We want [to] thank you all for your concern. Dad has the best care possible, on the mend and of strong mind body & spirit. (sic)"

The 'Star Wars' actor is still recovering in hospital after his two-seater WW2 vintage plane he was flying suffered engine failure.

His 'textbook landing" onto a golf course in Venice, Los Angeles ensured he cheated death but the 72-year-old actor did suffer "multiple gashes" to his head.

His co-stars from the sci-fi flick urged the actor to rest up, with Carrie - who played Princess Leia - telling Harrison: "I know you have incredible bounce back, please take a bounce break for awhile. Can I drive next time?"

Mark Hamill, who played Luke Skywalker, tweeted: "Glad to hear Harrison is doing well. Get well soon. May all his future flights be green-screen! (sic)"

On the day of the crash, a spokesperson confirmed that whilst Harrison was a little "banged up", he would be expected to recover fully from the accident.

They said: "Harrison was flying a WW2 vintage plane today which stalled 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."
