Injured “Transformers 3” extra almost ready to be released from hospital
HollywoodNews.com: Gabriela Cedillo, who was seriously injured while being an extra on the set of “Transformers 3”, is finally almost ready to be released from the hospital. After a cable pulling one of the stunt cars came loose and struck her in the head, she has had to go under multiple surgeries, and still has a lot of rehab ahead of her.
Her attorney, Todd A. Smith told Radar Online, “We’ve had experts look at all of the apparatus and it was clear from their evaluation that the welding that was done to secure the attachment point on the rear axle of the stunt car was completely inadequate. They didn’t create a proper fusion.”
In regards to her care he added, “Gabriela is still in the Rehab Institute of Chicago but she’s about to be released home so she can be taken in for outpatient physical and speech therapy. She’ll have to go in multiple times a week for extensive rehabilitation care. She continues to have paralysis issues on her left side.”
Smith points out that Paramount Pictures haven’t been too “cooperative” with the accident and that they “seek to call this a freak accident.”
