Background Actor Seriously Injured on the Set of TRANSFORMERS 3

A poor movie extra was seriously hurt on the set of Michael Bay's Transformers 3 last night while filming in Chicago. Apparently shooting was put on hold after a stunt had gone horribly wrong. The movie extra was airlifted to a hospital. The girl was 24 years old and she suffered a serious head injury. 

Here's the report with some more details on what happened:

A 24-year-old woman participating in a car stunt suffered a serious head injury during a 'Transformers 3' shoot in northwest Indiana one day before filming was supposed to conclude in the Chicago area.

Extra Gabriela Cedillo was injured on the set Wednesday night along a stretch of Cline Avenue, which was closed to traffic for filming, in East Chicago.

A stunt was apparently being performed during filming when Cedillo, who is not a stuntman, was hurt.

The vehicle was being towed by another vehicle," said fellow extra Blaine Baker. "The cable between the two vehicles broke. It whipped around and sliced through the woman's car and sliced through her skull, apparently."

Below you will find a video which includes the highlights of the report:
