This was a close call.
Morgan Freeman‘s private plane was forced to make an emergency landing in Mississippi overnight following the blowing of one of it’s tires during takeoff. Fortunately, the actor was unharmed and no injuries were reported. He released the following statement to PEOPLE: “Sometimes things don’t go as planned and a tire blew on takeoff which caused other problems. “But thanks to my excellent pilot Jimmy Hobson we landed safely without a scratch,” he added. “I cannot say the same about my plane. I appreciate the concern and prayers for our safety.”
The actor was en route to Texas to shoot a segment for the television series The Story Of God. Hopefully, all goes as planned from here on out.
