An eyewitness to the plane crash that injured 72-year-old Harrison Ford, says he  “saved several lives” by avoiding a nearby densely populated area. Eyewitnesses told NBC news that Ford, who is known for his role as Hans Solo in the ‘Star Wars’ movies and as ‘Indiana Jones,’ was alone in the plane at the time of the dramatic crash landing in California on Thursday. He suffered lacerations and there are reports he broke some bones. His publicist said his injuries were not life-threatening and he was expected to make a full recovery.

Now, many of you may know that I don't watch many movies. To answer the burning question...I have never seen any 'Star Wars' or 'Indiana Jones' movies. However, I have seen"Working Girl" and fell in love with him in that movie.
