    A production company was found guilty for two criminal charges for injuring Harrison Ford.

    A production company pleaded guilty Tuesday in British court to two criminal charges for a June 2014 incident that left Harrison Ford seriously injured on the set of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," NBC News reported.

    Foodles Production Ltd., a subsidiary of The Walt Disney Co., admitted in a magistrate court to two of four health and safety breaches after Ford was hit by a metal-framed hydraulic door that pinned his body to the ground. He had to be airlifted to a hospital for surgery.

    The door was part of the Millennium Falcon, the spacecraft commanded by his character, Han Solo. Ford was walking through the doorway, not knowing that the set was live, when he was struck in the pelvis and broke his leg.
