CNN - It appears Harrison Ford is battered, laid up in a hospital, but not in mortal danger. But when the 72-year-old actor’s single-engine plane plowed scars into the earth Thursday, it looked like a close call, if not for Ford, then at least for residents living some 50 yards away. Buzzing under the ever blue skies off a California beach, the World War II era training machine began losing power briefly after takeoff. Jens Lucking lives near the crash site and heard Ford’s distressed engine. "When he was right by the house, the engine cut out and then he turned around," he said.
