Hollywood star was just killed while doing a stunt on the set of a new movie. This is devastating.
It has been a devastating week for all of those on the set of the new Deadpool movie. TMZ just reported that a stunt person was killed on the set of “Deadpool 2” when a motorcycle stunt went terribly wrong.
The stunt person was a female who went airborne in Vancouver. It all happened Monday morning during filming for the movie.
Apparently, her bike crashed through the glass of a ground-floor studio inside Shaw Tower. This is near Jack Poole Plaza.
Witnesses say that she never applied the brakes on the bike. Right now her identity is being withheld.
We do know that she was pulled from the crash site and taken to the hospital by ambulance. Police have taped off the area of the crash, and the investigation process has already started.
This is already the second major mishap involving stunts recently. Tom Cruise was badly injured during a failed stunt on the set of “Mission: Impossible 6.”
A spokesperson for 20th Century Fox released a statement today stating that the woman had died due to injuries from the crash.
This is a horrifying experience for all on set. It is never easy to watch these stunts go poorly, especially when it takes another person’s life. I can’t imagine the pain that her family, friends and crew members are facing.
“We are deeply saddened by the accident that occurred on the set of Deadpool 2 this morning. Our hearts and prayers are with the family, friends and colleagues of our crew member during this difficult time.”
Prayers for the family during this heartbreaking and tragic time. And prayers for co-workers who have to continue to film the movie without her by their side.
