Chinese actor-model Huang Xiao Ming suffered a comminuted fracture (in which the bone breaks into a number of pieces) in two toes on his left foot when he fell 3 metres during the filming of his new movie The Bride With White Hair 3D.
He was filming a fighting scene in the air when a sudden gush of wind derailed the wires off the crane, causing the actor to crash straight to the ground. The 35-year-old was unable to stand up after the fall. Though he was in pain, he was worried that the accident would affect the shooting schedule.
On the way to the hospital for emergency treatment, he tried to relieve the tense atmosphere by joking, “Don’t worry, I’m the God of War.”
X-Ray results showed that other than the two injured toes, his left arm and right knee also suffered a number of bruises. He was then transferred to a renowned orthopedic hospital in Beijing for further treatment. Xiao Ming showed no signs of head injury after a thorough examination, but he is currently still at the hospital for observation.
Despite requiring surgery for his foot injury, it is believed that he would choose a ‘safer’ treatment alternative as he is expected to be busy with movie promotions of his new films The Flying Guillotine and The Last Tycoon next month.
Xiao Ming’s rumoured girlfriend, Hong Kong model-actress Angelababy, was said to have cancelled her work schedule in Hangzhou so that she could stay with him in Beijing. The 23-year-old expressed her concern via her manager, “It’s shocking to hear about that [his injury]. I’m sure all his friends feel the same.”
