'Resident Evil 5' Set Investigated After 16 Were Injured


'Resident Evil 5' Set Investigated After 16 Were Injured


Toronto Police Department and the Ministry of Labor are looking into the situation to determine whether there is imminent danger at the workplace.

Investigation is launched right after the report that 16 actors dressed as zombies got into accident on the Toronto set of "Resident Evil: Retribution". Inspectors have been dispatched by the Ontario Ministry of Labor to visit Cinespace's Kipling Studio where the incident occurred on Tuesday, October 11.

According to law enforcement, these actors were on a set that was on wheels. The set suddenly moved, sending all 16 actors five feet down to the ground. However William Lin, a ministry spokesperson, said that it is too early to speculate on the cause of accident. "We are conducting an investigation to (a) find out what happened and (b) ensure work place health and safety," he said.

Victor Kwong, a spokesperson for the Toronto Police Services, told The Wrap that no one was gravely injured but many were treated for arm, leg and back injuries. The injured actors were transported to local hospital and officials had a tough time finding the real injuries because they were in gory costumes.

Investigators would be able to determine whether the production should be shut down or not and whether they should file charges.
