Harrison Ford's Ankle "Crushed" by Millenium Falcon on Star Wars Set

I have a bad feeling about this. Shooting for Star Wars: Episode VII has got off on the wrong foot, with actor Harrison Ford reportedly being rushed to hospital after having his ankle "crushed" by a piece of the set.

Ironically, the set in question was that of the iconic Millenium Falcon, his character Han Solo's beloved craft. It's believed that a door from the spaceship fell on the star, resulting in the 71-year-old actor being airlifted from Pinewood Studios to the nearby John Radcliffe hospital.

Ford's character has been rumoured to be killed off at some point during the Star Wars comeback, directed by JJ Abrams. If he's not careful, it won't just be his character's spirit becoming one with the Force. [Sky News]
