Khurana was among the first to pull out the injured star from the wreckage.When Khurana saw the plane crash on the course, next to Santa Monica Airport, he followed his first instinct to rush to the plane to ensure the pilot was safe.

At the time, Khurana was golfing on the 7th hole of the Penmar Golf Course. He saw Ford's plane hit a tree before nose-diving to the ground. He dropped his clubs and ran to the crash site, seeing "a passenger in the rear seat slumped over in distress belted in."

"He was stunned a bit," Khurana said. "He was moaning and in pain." Khurana says he quickly recognised the famous pilot."It was obvious by his face, it was Harrison Ford. I'm old enough, or young enough, to have watched all his 'Star Wars' films. So, it was obvious," said Khurana

Khurana, who was interviewed by numerous TV channels in Los Angeles, said aside from worrying about Ford's injuries from the impact, he saw fuel leaking out of the World War II-era plane.

He and other golfers pulled Ford from the wreckage. Others threw dirt on the fuel so it wouldn't catch fire.
"We wanted to get him out safely and with the fuel leaking out, I motioned to some of the other folks at the golf course to put dirt on the fuel so it wouldn't combust. I just wanted to get him out safely so that the situation wouldn't erupt into a fire," Khurana told channels.

Khurana said though bleeding heavily, Ford was able to speak and move despite his injuries. Ford is best known for his roles in the "Star Wars" and "Indiana Jones".Ford is expected to make a full recovery.In a statement released Thursday night, the movie star's representative said while he was "banged up," his injuries were not life-threatening. His publicist, Ina Treciokas, described the actor's injuries as non-life-threatening.
