A stuntman was stabbed in the shoulder with a bayonet and then subsequently airlifted to a hospital while on the set of Brad Pitt and Shia LeBeouf's World War II film, Fury.
The 35-year-old stuntman was filming a one-on-one battle scene when a nine-inch blade was plunged into him. The wound was reportedly so severe the he had to be airlifted from the field in Watlington, Oxfordshire. His injuries are not believed to be life threatening.
A spokesman for Sony Pictures, said: "The incident involved two professional stuntmen filming a rehearsed action sequence. Unfortunately there was an accident. The man was injured but left the set laughing and talking."
Pitt, 49, and LeBeouf, 27, were on set at the time but did not actually witness the stabbing.
