Update Firm Fined £1.6m ($2m) Over Harrison Ford Injury on Star Wars Set

Harrison Ford is Back on Two Feet (Almost) with Prosthetic Peg Leg after Breaking Foot on Set while Filming Star Wars

By AP, 30 June 2014


Harrison Ford has been seen hobbling through London in a heavy-duty leg brace as he races his way back to fitness to continue filming Star Wars: Episode VII.
The veteran actor was hospitalised last month after breaking his foot during one of the first shoots of the latest episode.
Producers rushed to reshuffle the entire filming schedule as the 71-year-old was forced into a wheelchair.




Fighting back: Harrison Ford, 71, refused helping hands from friends as he hobbled down a flight of stairs using a prosthetic peg leg for support after breaking his foot on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII








Defiant: Despite fears the veteran actor would struggle to recover, he is clearly determined to get back on set


But it seems the action man is determined to fight back.
Inching his way down a flight of stairs outside London's exclusive 34 restaurant in Mayfair last night, he used a prosthetic peg leg for support, refusing any assistance from friends.

And it seems his wife Calista Flockhart seemed more than happy to leave him to his own devices, as she was spotted sight-seeing in Paris.

Reprising his role as the inter-galactic pilot Han Solo, his leg was crushed by his character's spaceship, the Millennium Falcon, which fell on his leg.

He was airlifted from Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire to the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford, which specialises in fractures.





Accident: Ford also pulled muscles and damaged a disc after the Millennium Falcon, his character's ship, fell on him


Speaking shortly before his accident, the American star described himself as a ‘battered old Ford’ and said he prefers to do his own action stunts.

He said: ‘I keep on coming back for more. If it doesn’t look real on the screen then an audience does not believe what it sees.’

The actor, who has also pulled muscles and damaged a disc in his back during the Indiana Jones films, added: ‘Although I do my own running, jumping and falling, I always try to keep myself from being hurt. So I know what will work and what won’t.’

Update re: Firm Fined £1.6m ($2m) Over Harrison Ford Injury on Star Wars Set

Star Wars Firm Fined £1.6m Over Harrison Ford Injury

BBC 13 October 2016

A film production company was on Wednesday fined £1.6 million ($2 million, 1.75 million euros) over an accident on the set of the latest Star Wars movie in which the actor Harrison Ford broke his leg.

Prosecutors said Ford, then 71, was pinned to the ground by a metal hydraulic door after it broke during filming of the blockbuster film at Pinewood Studios west of London in June 2014.

It acted like a "blunt guillotine", coming down "millimetres from his face" as the actor passed underneath, pinning him by the pelvis to the ground, prosecutor Andrew Marshall told the court, adding that the door was "capable of killing one or possibly two people".

The actor was injured in June 2014 at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire as he reprised his role as Han Solo.
He was struck by a metal door on the set of the Millennium Falcon spaceship.



Foodles Production (UK) Ltd, owned by Disney, pleaded guilty earlier this year to two charges brought by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

Following the incident during the filming of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Mr Ford was airlifted to hospital for surgery.

The Hollywood superstar was reprising his role as Han Solo for the film when he was hit by the door, which had been designed to mimic the action of spaceship on the original set.


'Lack of Communication'


At a previous hearing, the court was told the star could have been killed in the incident.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) said the power of the rapidly-closing door meant Ford was hit with a force comparable to the weight of a small car.

Judge Francis Sheridan said the firm had failed to communicate its risk assessment to Ford.

He said: "The greatest failing of all on behalf of the company is a lack of communication, a lack because, if you have a risk assessment and you do not communicate it, what is the point of having one?

"That is the most serious breach here.

"If only they had included Mr Ford in all the discussions, he might have at least been alert to the dangers that he had to avoid."

The door was designed to be remotely closed by a special effects operator, who shut it upon a signal from a spotter.

Ford needed surgery to screw together the fractured tibia and fibula bones in his left leg and plastic surgery on a "deep laceration" to his left hand.

Charles Gibson, who defended Foodles Production (UK), admitted there was a "failure in communication" between the production team and Ford.

"This was an innocent mistake by bona fide professionals," he told the court in Aylesbury northwest of London.
"Lessons were learned. The good health and safety record of this production continued to the end."


Judge Sheridan said the remote operation of the door by someone who could not see the actor going through it was a "crazy approach" to health and safety.


"Had the wrong button been pressed it would have continued to crush down on Mr Harrison Ford. It's just incredible that so much was left to chance."
