Harrison Ford's family says the actor is "battered, but OK" after crash landing a single-engine vintage plane onto a Venice golf course shortly after takeoff Thursday.
Ford was expected to undergo surgery for some injuries, but is in stable condition, the family said. He suffered some gashes, but is expected to be "fine."
"He is every bit the man you would think he is. "He is an incredibly strong man. Thank you for all your thoughts and good vibes for my dad," Ben Ford, the actor's son, posted on his Twitter page.
Aerial footage showed a small single-engine plane crashed on the ground, and one person being treated by paramedics and being transported to a hospital.

Costco Wholesale Corp is working toward eliminating the sale of chicken and meat from other animals raised with antibiotics that are vital to fighting human infections, senior executives at the third-largest U.S. retailer told Reuters on Thursday.
