AceShowbiz – A 30-year-old production assistant has been left paralysed following an accident on the “Batwoman” set.
Amanda Smith was hospitalised on 11 March after she was struck on the head with the bucket of a boom lift. She suffered a burst vertebrae and other serious spinal injuries, according to the Vancouver Sun.
Reports suggest she is currently recovering and in good spirits, although she has no feeling in her legs.
Friends and family are hoping she will regain sensation and use of her legs in rehabilitation.
Her friend, Tyler Mazzucco, has launched a rehabilitation fund in Smith’s name that has already topped $25,000 (£20,400) – halfway to its $50,000 (£41,000) goal.
Production on “Batwoman”, starring Ruby Rose, was suspended after the accident and the series is now on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic.
