Truth : Harrison Ford Did NOT Die In Hospital / Plane Crash!
This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by people to generate income from page / video views and advertising, and here are the reasons why…
Fact #1 : No Legitimate Media Outlet Reported His Death
These social media posts, as well as YouTube and TikTok videos have been circulating for months now, but people don’t seem to notice that no legitimate media has reported on Harrison Ford’s sudden death!
Harrison Ford is a Hollywood legend and a mega celebrity. His death would have been covered extensively by the media across the globe, and his legion of fans would have mourned his death on social media.
Yet, no legitimate media outlet has reported that Harrison Ford died recently from any cause, never mind a tragic plane crash. Why should you believe no-name websites, or random YouTube / TikTok videos?
Fact #2 : Harrison Ford Is Still Alive + Well!
Harrison Ford (born July 13, 1942) is still very much alive and well, as of April 2023, when he spoke to Total Film magazine for its April 27 issue.
In that interview, Harrison Ford confirmed that he won’t be playing Indiana Jones again, after Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny is released.
This is the final film in the series, and this is the last time I’ll play the character. I anticipate that it will be the last time that he appears in a film.
That interview comes many days to weeks after those social media posts, YouTube and Facebook videos claimed that he died suddenly in a hospital or a tragic plane crash!

Fact #3 : This Plane Crash Photo Was From 2015
Harrison Ford has been flying for a long time. He learned to fly after leaving university, but could not afford to pursue it.
Only after he was financially stable in his 50s, did he renew his training to “see if I could learn something new”. He has since been involved in several crashes and near misses, but walked away in every instance.
In 1999, he was learning to fly a helicopter when he had to crash land it in a dry river bed in California. Ford and his instructor walked away unhurt, but the helicopter was badly damaged.
The photo below which some videos are using is from 2015, when Harrison Ford brought down his plane in a Los Angeles golf course, after suffering an engine failure shortly after taking off. He suffered a broken arm and some head injuries.
In 2017, Harrison Ford mistakenly landed his plane on a taxiway, narrowly missing an airliner carrying more than 100 people. In 2020, he mistakenly crossed the end of a runway while another aircraft was taking off from the other end.
Harrison Ford put his flying skills to good use, when he rescued a 13 year-old Boy Scout who went missing in the Yellowstone National Park in 2001. Ford spotted Cody Clawson in his helicopter, and landed to pick him up.
I was like, “Oh my God, Han Solo just rescued me. How could is that?
Just to be clear, Harrison Ford did not die in a plane crash, as of April 2023.

Fact #4 : This Photo Was From Geoff Nugent’s Funeral
This photo is not of Harrison Ford’s funeral, but shows the funeral of Liverpool musician Geoff Nugent from the band, The Undertakers who died in October 2014.
The photo was taken on 24 October 2014, at St. Chad’s Church, in Kirkby, Merseyside in England.
As you can see, the fake news creator added a photo of Harrison Ford to the photo, which is not visible in the real photo.

Fact #5 : This Photo Was From Archie Battersbee’s Funeral
This photo is not of Harrison Ford’s funeral, but shows the funeral of Archie Battersbee – a 12 year-old boy who suffered catastrophic brain damage in Essex, England.
His funeral was held at the St. Mary’s Church in Southend on Tuesday, 13 September 2022.
Fact #6 : Harrison Ford Death Hoax Is Driven By Fake Fact Check Too
This Harrison Ford death hoax is, ironically, just another fake fact check article by MediaMass Project, which keeps “updating” the dates in their fake fact check article:
News of actor Harrison Ford’s death spread quickly earlier this week causing concern among fans across the world. However the April 2023 report has now been confirmed as a complete hoax and just the latest in a string of fake celebrity death reports. Thankfully, the actor best known for his roles in Indiana Jones or Star Wars is alive and well.
Their claim of a viral R.I.P. Harrison Ford Facebook page is false. There is no such Facebook page. It is their standard fake fact check spiel for fake celebrity deaths.
The statement from Harrison Ford’s unnamed rep confirming that he is not dead is exactly the same as statements from other celebrities whose reps MediaMass claimed were victims of death hoaxes, like Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Celine Dion, Justin Bieber, Simon Cowell, Sylvester Stallone, Tom Hanks, Dolly Parton, Lucy Liu, and Melanie Laurent.
Hidden in the description page for the MediaMass Project is a disclaimer that they are a “satire” website. That’s the usual “cover” for websites peddling fake news.
Regardless of their reasons, anything posted by MediaMass.net must be considered as fake news, until proven otherwise.
