When working on the set of the latest movie in the Resident Evil franchise in South Africa, stunt-woman,(and stunt-double for star Milla Jovovich), Olivia Jackson was severely injured during a motorcycle stunt.
The motorbike she was riding smashed into a camera crane and left her with horrific injuries. She was put into an induced coma which she recently came out of and was able to explain her injuries in detail…….this is pretty insane!.
“2 weeks in a coma, brain bleed, brain swelling, severed main artery in the neck, crushed & degloved face, several broken ribs, paralyzed arm, shattered scapula, broken clavicle, broken humerus, broken radius & ulna, with an open wound and a 7.5 piece of bone missing, amputated thumb, torn fingers, 5 nerves torn out of the spinal cord…. not my funnest day on set. Thanks to everyone for their prayers and beautiful messages. I’m sure it’s all helped pull me through this difficult time. Long road to recovery but just gonna take it day by day.”
This is without a doubt the severest of injuries I have heard of (apart from death) that happened on a film set. I sincerely hope that her health continues to improve and that she can make a recovery of some kind. She sounds like a very brave and courageous woman.
