After actor Harrison Ford was confirmed to be only “battered and bruised” following a Thursday morning plane crash, the irresistible jabs began.

Ford’s single engine plane crashed on the Penmar Golf Course outside of Venice, Calif., but a representative told the press Ford is expected to make a full recovery.

“Harrison was flying a WW2 vintage plane today which stalled upon takeoff.” the rep told TMZ. “He had no other choice but to make an emergency landing, which he did safely. The injuries sustained are not life-threatening, and he is expected to make a full recovery.” His son Ben also confirmed his father’s condition on Twitter.

A witness at the scene told TMZ that she witnessed the crash.

A witness who was golfing at the time of the crash tells us she heard the engine sputter … and watched the plane do a “nose dive straight on the 8th hole tee box.”

The witness adds, “I was one of the first people to run from the hole toward the plane. 4 to 5 men pulled the pilot out of the plane.”

“They got him away from the plane. They were concerned it would catch on fire.”

“Two doctors were there – and they had a 1st aid box with them. He was conscious, talking a little — a HUGE cut on his head.”

The witness tells us the cut was VERY deep — “A swath of his skin was missing. There was blood dripping down his face.”

The Twitterverse wasted no time firing off the jokes .
