10 Celebrities Who Have Had Near Death Experiences

Believe it or not but actors and actresses have pretty dangerous jobs. Sure, most of them get paid a ton of money to stand around and look good, but a select few actually get really physical with their roles. The celebrities that choose to do their own stunts, for example, are putting their lives at risk. There have been many deaths during movie productions recently which has caused Hollywood to take safety more serious. Some actors are better at it than others, but even the best of us mess up. This list covers 10 celebrities who narrowly escaped death while filming.

Jason Statham

The famous action actor was filming a scene for The Expendables 3, when the brakes on the truck malfunctioned. The truck went over a cliff into the Black Sea, but Statham was lucky enough to dive out of the vehicle before he drowned.

Jackie Chan

While the martial artist was filming a scene in Armour of God, he miscalculated a jump during one of his stunts which resulted in a brain injury. He would later have to get brain surgery in which a metal plate was put in his head.
