Actor Harrison Ford is reportedly in stable condition after crashing his single-engine plane Thursday on a California golf course.

Ford, 72, encountered engine trouble shortly after taking off from the Santa Monica Municipal Airport. His plane crashed on Penmar Golf Club in Mar Vista, Calif., where he was quickly tended to by Sanjay Khurana, a surgeon who happened to be playing the course at the time of the crash.

"He was stunned a bit," Khurana told ABC News. "He was moaning and in pain."

Ford is best known for his roles in the "Star Wars" and "Indiana Jones" series of films. He was later hospitalized and listed in "fair to moderate" condition by the Los Angeles Fire Department.

Khurana, meanwhile, has a story that will be tough to beat at 19th holes in the future.

"You don't go golfing and expect to see an airplane crash," he said. "To help extract someone and realize it's someone you know from the movies, right? It's fairly bizarre."
