Morgan Freeman Had An In-Flight SCARE!

Morgan Freeman had a weird Saturday night…

The actor had a shocking plane ride when the private jet he commissioned spun off a runway during an emergency landing. TMZ reports:

We’re told Morgan was the only passenger on the plane when it experienced significant hydraulic problems shortly after takeoff.  The pilot radioed a mayday and was cleared to land in Tunica, Mississippi — 36 miles from where the plane took off.

It’s unclear if the pilot touched down too late, the runway was just too small to accommodate the jet or the hydraulic problem compromised the braking system, but the jet didn’t stop at the end of the runway and ended up in a dirt field.

Morgan just said, “Sometimes things don’t go as planned and a tire blew on take-off 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.”

Well, at least nobody was hurt. Count those blessings, Morgan. Also, possible title to a new feel-good feature you can star in? (You can write me a check later).

Morgan Freeman’s Granddaughter E’Dena Hines Was Killed This Weekend

Screen Shot 2015-08-16 at 9.39.10 PM

This is so, so sad.

Morgan Freeman‘s 33-year-old step-granddaughter E’Dena Hines was stabbed early Sunday in New York City, by some violent individual who is currently in police custody. She died later that day after being taken to the hospital, and the investigation seems…very mysterious. People reports:

A 30-year-old man was taken into custody at the scene and taken to Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center, the NYPD said in a statement to People.

Responding officers found E’Dena Hines lying in the street outside her home on the 400 block of W. 162nd Street at about 3 a.m., where she was suffering from multiple stab wounds to her torso, according to the statement.

Hines, the granddaughter of Morgan’s first wife, was taken by EMS to Harlem Hospital and pronounced dead, according to the statement.

The investigation is ongoing.

In a statement to PEOPLE, Morgan Freeman reflected on her talent and how she touched the lives of those who knew her.

“The world will never know her artistry and talent, and how much she had to offer,” he said. “Her friends and family were fortunate enough to have known what she meant as a person.

“Her star will continue to shine bright in our hearts, thoughts and prayers. May she rest in peace.”

According to Hines’ website, she studied acting at New York University’s prestigious Graduate Acting Program. She also taught “under-exposed youths” in Memphis, Tennessee.

Hines was active in the acting community in New York City, often writing about it on her Facebook page and sharing playful photos.

Aw man.  I will definitely let you all know when we know more about this- this seems like a story that definitely has more to it than just a rando stabbing.  So tragic.
