Olivia Jackson, one of the hottest stuntwomen in the industry, was recently involved in an awful accident on set of the new Resident Evil: The Final Chapter movie. The experienced veteran collided with a metal camera arm while filming in her native country, South Africa, back in September.
As a result of the accident, Olivia’s now-paralyzed left arm needs to be amputated. Here’s what she wrote in a Facebook post:
“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.”
From what we can gather, if anyone was going to make it after a horrific injury like that–it’s Olivia. The tough SOB has had more injuries than we can count and even did a prolonged MMA stint in Thailand.
