Kevin Hart and Mark Wahlberg’s new Netflix movie had a really terrible delay as one of their crew members suffered a terrible fall. They were injured badly and paramedics had to take action.
TMZ reports that paramedics got to the scene after receiving a call about a person who suffered a “long fall.” The 38-year-old male did not appear to be wearing a safety device and he plummeted from a catwalk about 60 to 80 feet from the ground according to the Fire Department.
He fractured both of his legs and his arms. A production source said that the fall was around 30 feet, and not 60 to 80, but it was still a tremendous fall.
Our fire dept. sources say when paramedics arrived, the man didn’t have a pulse and on-set medical workers were performing CPR. LAFD first responders used a defibrillator multiple times to get a heartbeat. A fire dept. official tells TMZ, when they arrived his condition was “grave” but after they got a heartbeat it was upgraded to “critical.”
The patient was then rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment. At this time he is being treated for those terrible injuries. It’s unclear exactly what led to this accident, but the terrible event took place during Hart and Wahlberg’s upcoming Netflix film, “Me Time,” which is currently in production.
