Harrison Ford crash-landed his vintage airplane on a golf course just short of the Santa Monica Municipal Airport yesterday after experiencing engine failure. Reports state that “a couple of doctors” were near-by and cared for the 72-year-old movie star until paramedics arrived.
What the news reports didn’t mention was how fortunate Ford was to have crashed on a golf course. A lawyer who was teeing off on the ninth hole stated, “Other than crashing his plane directly into a hospital, a golf course has more doctors per square foot than any other place on earth.”
Even before the plane came to stop, a mass of physicians responded from all over the golf course and surrounded the plane. The shiver of lawyers who materialized at the crash site were left to circling the accident scene in golf carts while the three deep ring of doctors cared for Ford. Ford not only received a complete head to toe physical examination, he also got five botox injections, a non-surgical chin lift, a kidney stone removed, three fentanyl patches applied, two skin tags removed, a complete cardiac workup and a pap smear.
