Are crew members constantly put in danger on set of 'Sleepy Hollow'?
Fox's 'Sleepy Hollow' is still filming their first episode but, the series has had a kidnapping, a sexual assault, and near-death incident in less than a month.
According to Wilmywood, a major incident occurred on the set of 'Sleepy Hollow'.
First thing this morning while unloading trucks on location (just south of Conyers, GA), a 2nd AC was backing into the road pulling a camera cart and got hit by a generator being pulled by a stake bed.
One source said that the trailer pinned her foot and rolled up her leg, breaking both bones in her lower leg. EMTs responded immediately. The complete extent of the injury is unknown at this time. That sounds EXTREMELY painful! Wishing this lady some serious good vibes, good pain meds and a full recovery.
I was told that filming resumed after the accident, but they dropped the stunt that was up first thing this morning.
This is the second major incident that has occurred on set of Fox's 'Sleepy Hollow' in the past seven days. Earlier this month, a female security guard was kidnapped and sexually assaulted.
According to the press release…
“She was sitting in her (black 2007 BMW 328i) when she was approached by two black males with their faces covered, one wearing a black bandana and one wearing a red bandana. They forced the victim into her own vehicle’s trunk.”
After joyriding with the female in the truck of the passenger car, the two suspects forced her to give them the PIN to her ATM card, and they withdrew money from the Bank of America, 1088 West Avenue, Conyers.”
The Fox series moved to Conyers, Georgia for season 3 due to the lack of film incentives in North Carolina.
‘Sleepy Hollow’ is a modern day version of Washington Irving’s ‘The Legend of Sleepy Hollow’. A police lieutenant searches for the Headless Horseman after he beheads the sheriff. The serial killing Headless Horseman forces Crane and the lieutenant to team up, especially when they find out that they are destined to be the two witnesses, the only ones who can protect the world from the forces of Hell. ‘Sleepy Hollow’ stars Tom Mison, Nichole Beharie and Orlando Jones.
