Harrison Ford could have been killed when he was crushed by a hydraulic door on the set of the Millennium Falcon spaceship while filming the most recent Star Wars film.
The hydraulic spaceship door was operated by another person and as the actor passed beneath it, he was hit hard in the pelvis and pinned to the floor.

Andrew Marshall, prosecuting, said the breaches had caused a “risk of death” and that if the emergency stop had not been pressed in time, it could have been a very different outcome for Ford.
