Cape Town – South African born stuntwoman, Olivia Jackson, is still recovering from her injuries after a horrific motorcycle accident during a stunt sequence on the set of Resident Evil.
Olivia was seriously injured in her face, head, shoulder and left hand and arm in the 5 September accident on the set of the film in Johannesburg.
According to a report by The Daily Mail, Olivia’s left arm will be amputated.
“My left arm is paralysed and is going to have to be amputated,” Olivia told The Sun.
“My facial scarring is horrible and I wish I had my old face. But I’m truly grateful to be alive.”
