Ford rescues missing Wyo. hiker
JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) – Harrison Ford starred in a search-and-rescue sequel for a missing Boy Scout in a forest just south of Yellowstone National Park. The actor, a part-time Jackson resident who offers his flying skills and helicopter for rescue missions, joined a search for a missing Utah Boy Scout who had wandered off a trail Monday and spent a cold night alone in the secluded forest, said the Teton County Sheriff’s Office in Wyoming. After two hours of flying, Ford and another searcher found 13-year-old Cody Clawson, clad in a T-shirt, shorts and sandals, about 10 miles from a Boy Scout camp at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday. He landed nearby to whisk the soggy, cold, tired and hungry scout to safety. “Boy, you sure must have earned a merit badge for this one,” said Ford, who turns 59 this week. Clawson survived the rainy night by taking cover under a rock outcropping.
I don’t know the guy personally, but Harrison just seems to be one of the nicest guys you can meet. That is if you forget the whole “What Lies Beneath” thing…
