A few weeks ago, I reported on Milla Jovovich's stunt double, Olivia Jackson, who nearly died on the set of [Resident Evil 6: The Final Chapter](tag:671270). She's had a storied career, and you can read that article to find out even more about how she has really made a name for herself as a stunt woman in Hollywood.
Well, the good news that is coming from the tragic situation is that Jackson is now in stable condition.
Take a look at the Facebook share from Jovovich after the incident:
According to Life Is Savage, Jackson was finally able to speak out and she mentioned all of the unfortunate things that happened to her since the accident.
Warning: Some of this is gruesome
- Two weeks in a coma with a bleeding and swollen brain.
- Severed the main artery in her neck.
- Crushed and “degloved” face—Look that up at your own risk.
- Broken ribs.
- Shattered Scapula.
- Broken Clavicle.
- Broken Humerus.
- Broken Radius & Ulna.
- Amputated thumb.
- Torn fingers.
- Five nerves torn from her spinal cord.
Eek. What an extraordinarily strong woman! From what I've read about her, she'll fight on to what will hopefully be a very healthy recovery. She's a real-life Superwoman. I'm glad she made it out, and I think the near-death experience she had will make her even stronger, as if that were even possible for this powerful woman.
