‘RESIDENT EVIL’ ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE
16 actors playing zombies in latest “Resident Evil” flick fell high from a platform in Toronto and were rushed to the hospital!
Police Constable Tony Vella said the actors had been filming a scene on a high wheeled platform. Suddenly, the platform shifted as they were going to another platform, leaving a gap through which the zombies fell.
Toronto emergency medical spokesman Peter Macintyre said the victims' makeup and costumes made it difficult at first for crews to assess injured.
"I (saw) the look on the first paramedic, saying 'Oh my God,'" Toronto emergency medical services Commander David Ralph said.
At 8 AM paramedics responded to the 911 call from Cinespace Film Studios to aid the twisted and torn living dead- mostly bloody thanks to special effects makeup.
"It did kind of catch us off guard when we walked in," Toronto Police Sgt. Andrew Gibson said responders quickly figured out which zombies were actually injured and which were in character.
Several vics suffered leg, back and arm injuries. Twelve were rushed to a local ER.
“Resident Evil” goddess Milla Jovovich was not on set during the accident, her rep confirmed.
Canada's Ministry of Labor is investigating the incident classified as an industrial accident as opposed to an Act of Romero -- George Romero.
