This seems like maybe the one time it’s okay to laugh at people’s pain. The Associated Press reports today that sixteen actors dressed as zombies were injured when they fell from a platform during a movie shoot today. The funny part?
Toronto emergency medical spokesman Peter Macintyre said the victims’ costumes made it difficult at first for crews to assess the severity of their injuries.
Paramedics responded to the call from Cinespace Film Studios around 8 a.m. to find what appeared - thanks to Hollywood special effects makeup - to be people who had suffered some untold catastrophe.
“I could see the look on the first paramedic, saying `Oh my God,’” Toronto emergency medical services Commander David Ralph said with a laugh.
12 of the zombies were taken to the hospital and they are expected to be okay.
