    my friend who is an extra saw the whole thing happen and said it was crazy. several extras were driving their cars when the explosions from a pyrotechnic or something shot something through the wind shield of the car.

    oh and tigerhawk, you must have a small penis.

    To be honest, from some of the videos we've seen, I was almost expecting something like this.

    Hope she's not banged up too bad.

    you'd think they'd protect their extras appropriately while filming explosions.

    Oh come on, it was an accident. Accidents happen, and the best we can do is wish her a speedy recovery. Those are the risks you take when you sign up to be an extra on a shoot with pyrotechnics.

    Hope she gets better. Also why would Bay not have the explosions looked at and set more carfully to avoid such things? Like have someone inspect them and make sure nothing loose and sharp is around the device at the time of it going off so no shrapnal can kill someone. Since he loves blowing stuff up so much, he should really look into this.

    Again, that's why it's an accident. They're real explosions, planned or not, and there's always a slim chance something can go wrong no matter how much you prepare.

    Someone died on the set of Dark Knight. To be getting mad just because this is Bay is kind of a douchey thing to do. It's an accident.

    I agree accidents do happen on every movie, Look at TDK 2 people died, One movie related and one not. But People should just be more careful especialy if involving such massive mayham with explosives.

    They're being as careful as they can. Aside from not doing it, they can't be anymore careful, these are trained pyrotechnicians. Again, it's not like this is anyone's fault, it's an accident.

    Even with all the modern safety equipment and all the planning that goes into a production a movie set can still be a dangerous place.

    With any luck they are being overly cautious with her condition and hopefully her injuries are not too bad so she has a full and quick recovery.

    You know, I wish I could say I'm surprised, but honestly, back when I heard that story of Shia getting his eyelid cut open by debris during the filming of ROTF, I always wondered how long it'd be till someone got really hurt.

    I hope for the woman's sake, it's nothing too much worse then Shia's eyelid incident.

    Really? I had never heard about that. Must have been overshadowed by Heath Ledger's death. Which...Kinda sucks.
    But you better believe if this woman is seriously hurt, or goodness forbid dies, people are going to hold it against Bay. People hate him enough already just for his movies.

    ...Classy.

    Best wishes to her recovery. Kinda of sad that these kind of things happen despite all the care in the world being taken to avoid it.

    QTF, and I don't remember having said that. Some people are so anti-Bay that they think his Pearl Harbor movie is a bigger scourge to humanity than the real bombing was.

    This being a stunt person/driver is rough work and they know what they are getting into when they sign up for a job.

    Actually it states that she was in fact not part of the stunt personnel. Only an extra. And given the type of danger Bay can put the actual actors in, it could be possible this woman didn't know what she was getting into.

    Heck, from the little info we have here, for all we know she may not even have been in the scene that was being filmed. She could just have been nearby.

    She's in a car in a Michael Bay movie. She had to know exactly what she was getting into.
