16 actors dressed as zombies were injured on the set of the horror flick “Resident Evil 5” in west Toronto at the Cinespace Film Studios. Canadian law enforcement reports that the actors were on a set that was on wheels when it suddenly moved. The collapse of the soundstage platform sent the actors 20 feet down to the ground.
The actors were immediately treated for arm‚ leg and back injuries as well as possible broken bones. One actor suffered a cracked rib and another sustained a stress fracture of the tibia. None of the injuries seemed life-threatening.
The actors are eligible for compensation from the production studio for their injuries and loss of wages. They should immediately contact a personal injury lawyer to file work injury claims and get the money they need and deserve.
