A Skywalking Star Flies to the Rescue

July 12, 2001|From Times Wire Reports

Harrison Ford starred in a search-and-rescue sequel for a missing Boy Scout in a forest just south of Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming.

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, said the Teton County Sheriff's Office.

After two hours of flying, Ford and another searcher found 13-year-old Cody Clawson, clad in a T-shirt, shorts and sandals, at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday. He landed nearby to whisk the soggy, cold, tired and hungry Scout to safety.

This is the second time in a year that Ford has aided in a rescue.
