Harrison's eldest son from a previous marriage, Ben Ford, also visited him and thanked his fans for their well wishes on Twitter, writing: "At the hospital. Dad is ok. Battered, but ok! He is every bit the man you would think he is. He is an incredibly strong man.

"Thank you all for your thoughts and good vibes for my dad."

Harrison was "alert and conscious" after he saved his own life with a "textbook emergency landing" near Venice Beach.

A spokesperson for the star previously said: "He was banged up and is in the hospital receiving medical care. The injuries sustained are not life threatening, and he is expected to make a full recovery."
