5:05 PM PT — TMZ just obtained video of first responders on the scene treating Harrison … just yards away from the plane he just crash landed on the golf course.
5:00 PM PT — Harrison’s son Ben just tweeted, “At the hospital. Dad is ok. Battered, but ok! He is every bit the man you would think he is.”
4:30 PM PT — We’ve obtained intense audio of Harrison talking to the Santa Monica Airport control tower just moments after he’d taken off. Listen … you hear him report engine failure and request an emergency return to the airport.
4:41 PM PT — 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.”
