Harrison Ford was airlifted to a local hospital today after being injured on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII. A source at Disney Studios states Ford was injured when the door of the Millennium Falcon malfunctioned and fell on his ankle. The statement from Disney explains the nature of the 71-year-old actor’s injury, which occurred on set at Pinewood studios in Buckinghamshire:

“Harrison Ford sustained an ankle injury during filming today on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII. He was taken to a local hospital and is receiving care. Shooting will continue as planned while he recuperates.”

A spokesman for the Thames Valley Police, who responded to the call about Ford’s injury, interpreted the story slightly differently:

“We were called to Pinewood studios at 5.05pm after reports of a 71-year-old man being injured by a garage door.”

It just goes to show, there should be an age limit to running around and playing Jedi Warrior.
