According to TMZ on Wednesday morning, a source told them that Halle Berry was rushed to the Cedars Sinai Medical Center on Tuesday night immediately after the incident, and was transported via ambulance; and the shooting was temporarily stopped.
As reported by Los Angeles Times on Wednesday afternoon, a spokesman of California Occupational Safety and Health Administration (Cal/OSHA) told them that the said incident will not be investigated since it was not that serious and does not require any further investigation.
“The incident was not reported to Cal/OSHA and was not required to be reported,” She was released from the hospital quickly, so we will not be investigating.” Cal/OSHA spokesman Peter Melton was quoted in the report, emphasizing that the agency only investigates accidents in workplace that are caused by unsafe practices.
“If she just fell on a concrete floor, we’re not going to go seal off the floor and say it’s dangerous.” Melton added. Berry‘s rep earlier confirmed to People that the 45-year old Oscar-winning actress was shooting the movie “The Hive” when the incident happened.
Apparently, this is not the first time that Halle Berry met an accident while shooting for a movie. The last time was last September, when she had a foot injury in Spain while filming “Cloud Atlas“, which was said to be the reason why she was not able to attend the Academy Awards in February.
