Forget about Han Solo or Indiana Jones—it’s Harrison Ford to the rescue!
The 75-year old actor—once again—became a real-life hero after helping a woman in Santa Paula, California who was trapped in her vehicle after having a car accident, confirms Ventura County Star.
Santa Paula Police Department officer Matt Alonzo told the local newspaper that the unidentified woman was driving down the highway when her car veered off the road and crashed into a tree.
Fortunately for this woman, Harrison Ford was in the area with a friend, and didn’t hesitate to head over and assist this “damsel in distress”.
“He acted as a good Samaritan, just like everybody else, and tried to help before emergency services arrived,” Alonzo told the publication.
The Star Wars star and other people nearby the accident rushed to help the woman get out of her car. Luckily, she was the only passenger and escaped with only a few minor injuries.
After making sure the woman was safe and sound, Harrison Ford quietly withdrew from the scene.
This is not the first time that the Oscar nominee has acted as an impromptu hero in an emergency situation. Just last September, Ford helped direct traffic during a tunnel jam in New York City.
On another occasion, 17 years before that, Harrison Ford used his helicopter to rescue a hiker who got stranded in Idaho Falls. The following year, in 2001, he did it again. A 13-year-old boy scout was lost for 18 hours near Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming and Ford used his helicopter to find him.
CONFIRMED: Not even his most iconic characters have nothing on Harrison Ford—not even his bravery or the ability to always be in the right place at the right time!
