Get well soon, Harrison Ford!
Though the actor remains in the hospital after surviving a plane crash yesterday, the 72-year-old actor's son, Ben, assures his dad is "battered, but ok" following the accident.
"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," Ben, 47, tweeted on the evening of Thursday, March 6.

"Thank you all for your thoughts and good vibes for my dad," he added in a subsequent tweet.
Harrison was taken to an LA hospital yesterday afternoon shortly after his small, two-seater plane crashed on Penmar Golf Course. The 'Indiana Jones' star sustained injuries including multiple gashes on his head and is now in stable condition, according to a new report.

"It appears that [Harrison] had some sort of engine trouble during takeoff... he appeared to have made a turn back towards the [Santa Monica, Calif.] airport and didn't have enough speed to make it to the runway, so he made a beautifully executed forced landing here at the golf course," Christian Fry, Vice President of the Santa Monica Airport Association said of the crash.
"[It was] really just a great job by a very well-trained pilot," Fry told 'People.'
