Stuntwoman Olivia Jackson Needs Arm Amputated After Accident
Olivia Jackson, who has worked as a stunt double on films such as Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Mad Max: Fury Road, will need her arm amputated after an accident on set.
The 34-year-old stuntwoman was filming a motorcycle stunt on the set of Resident Evil: The Final Chapter back in September when a camera arm didn’t raise in time and her vehicle slammed into it.
“My left arm is paralyzed and is going to have to be amputated,” Olivia told The Sun. “My facial scarring is horrible and I wish I had my old face. But I’m truly grateful to be alive.”
“There is a metal arm which carries the camera along. But it malfunctioned and didn’t lift up,” a source told the outlet. “It was totally out of her control. She had no chance.”
