A private flight carrying actor Morgan Freeman was forced into a risky emergency landing in Mississippi on Saturday.
The 78-year-old Oscar winner said the plane experienced technical difficulties after take-off, forcing the pilot to carry out an emergency crash landing, the BBC reports.
“A tire blew on take-off, which caused other problems. But thanks to my excellent pilot, Jimmy Hobson, we landed safely without a scratch,” Freeman said.
The Hollywood icon then coolly shrugged off the scare: “I appreciate the concern and prayers for our safety.”
