Harrison Ford: Rescue Hero

Harrison Ford's biography is like a list of the best movies ever. He starred in all three of the original Star Wars movies as Han Solo, he's played the heroic president of the USA in Air Force One and saved the day as Indiana Jones in three flicks. Harrison Ford is a man of action on screen - and he's a hero off screen too.

Harrison Ford Rescues People

Twice in one year Harrison Ford rushed to the rescue, like Han Solo from Star Wars, in his private Bell 407 helicopter.

  • August 5, 2000 he rescued 20 year-old Sarah George from a hiking trip gone wrong. She was stranded with her friend Megan until Harrison Ford flew down in his chopper and flew her to the hospital. He didn't even mind that she threw up in his chopper!
  • July 11, 2001, when rescue teams couldn't find a missing Boy Scout, 13 year-old Cody Clawson, they called Harrison Ford. Harrison put on his superhero tights and flew his chopper in to rescue Cody. He found Cody, picked him up and flew him to safety.

Harrison Ford: Chopper Pilot

All this heroism is because Harrison Ford owns his own helicopter (and planes) and helps out search & rescue teams near his home in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Helping out his community and saving people in trouble makes Harrison Ford a real-life action hero.

“Instruction in world history in the so-called high schools is even today in a very sorry condition. Few teachers understand that the study of history can never be to learn historical dates and events by heart and recite them by rote; that what matters is not whether the child knows exactly when this battle or that was fought, when a general was born, or even when a monarch (usually a very insignificant one) came into the crown of his forefathers. No, by the living God, this is very unimportant. To 'learn' history means to seek and find the forces which are the causes leading to those effects which we subsequently perceive as historical events.”
