Let’s take a trip down memory lane to Jason Statham’s close call on the set of ‘The Expendables 3.’ Little did anyone know that his background in Olympic diving would come in handy when a stunt took a turn for the worse!
Almost a decade ago, Jason Statham’s near-death experience on the set of “The Expendables 3” left fans around the world breathless. While test-driving a three-ton truck, a brake mishap sent Statham and the vehicle plunging 60ft deep into the Black Sea. Despite heavy boots and gun belts, Statham’s past as an Olympic-quality diver came to his rescue, and he miraculously escaped. Co-star Sylvester Stallone also had his share of misfortunes, leading to a metal plate in his back after a nasty fall. This incident serves as a chilling reminder of the real dangers actors often face, and we should raise our glasses to the death-defying stunts and real-life heroes like Jason Statham.
