As a result, I began to plummet. And, because I couldn’t catch the ladder with my hand because it was broken, I fell. I also fell on top of two stuntmen who, clearly, were not expecting me to fall. At the bottom, there was a very thin mat. It was probably a 20- to 25-foot plunge. That’s a long drop, but I thought to myself, “It’s not like I dropped from the second storey.” The fall was minor in comparison to the injury to my hand. My knuckles were shattered, and there was a lot of blood on the floor. And the grating struck me in the head, giving me a concussion. IMDB
A medic is usually present on set, especially when action sequences are being shot. We also had an older gentleman who was never present since he was constantly outside smoking Marlboro reds. And when this happened, he was putting out his cigarette and sprinting over to see what he could do (laughs), but he clearly couldn’t do anything about a broken hand. On the way to the hospital, he was in the vehicle with me, which was not at all comfortable, and I turned to him and asked, “Hey, do you know the hospital we’re going to?” And he said, ‘Yeah, I’m aware of that.’ ‘Is it a decent hospital?’ I inquire.
