That's all right. You go ahead. Harrison Ford crash landing his plane is not actor's first brush with death. That's right. The star loves to push the limits as you can see on and off screen and ABC's aditi Roy has the story. Reporter: He bolted away from the Boulder in Indiana joeps, starred in "Star wars." And in "The fugitive," Harrison Ford continues to dive right into danger. The academy award nominated actor escaping death in real life Thursday after surviving a plane crash in California. Ford widely known for doing some of his own stunts, no stranger to injuries. His stunt double telling ABC news he's always willing. Harrison probably does about 90% to 95% of his stunts. Reporter: In Indiana Jones he injured the ligament in his knee forcing him to swap a sword fight for a simple gunshot. Ford's character walks with a limp in "The fugitive" because Ford injured himself filming in the woods. In between shots he was in a wheelchair when they say action he'd stand up and would do the shots. Reporter: And the 72-year-old action icon is still at it. The filming of "Star wars:episode 7" delayed after Ford's ankle was broken. No stranger to seeking that big screen thrill in his permanent life. It was ugly. Reporter: Response for high-flying acts of heroism but experiences mishaps crash landing a copter in 1999 and getting blown off the runway in 2000. People who live on the edge, for them the risk is worth it rather than to live a boring life. Reporter: An adventure we're always bracing for. I didn't know you could fly a plane. Fly, yes. Land, no. Reporter: For "Good morning America," aditi Roy, ABC news, Los Angeles. That's incredible. 90% to 95% of his stunts and I love that little tidbit from "The fugitive" he was hobbling because he legitimately hurt himself. And on the new "Star wars," as well. I'm glad he's okay because I've -- we've loved watching him for decades now. Very happy he's doing all right.
