A production company that worked on the Star Wars: The Force Awakens project has been found blameworthy after the deadly accident the actor Harrison Ford met, the accident that broke his legs on the sets of the movie. The production house has been accused in two criminal charges.
Because of a heavy hydraulic door that uncontrollably fell on Ford, while he was rehearsing for a sequence of the movie. He received severe injuries, and ended breaking his leg. Anything unexpected and sorrowing could have happened on the sets of the latest Star Wars movie.
Though it is an incident of 2014, the Disney subsidiary Foodle Production Limited will be sentenced at Aylesbury Crown Court on coming 22 August 2015.
The production company owned by Disney has also accepted that there were two health and safety flaws in the setting.
What had actually happened on the set?
The full report is published by The Guardian, UK. According to the report, Ford had gone through the door, and pressed a button to come back through the same door, ideating that the door would not close, but it did, and it closed right on him, hurting him sternly.
Andrew Marshall, who is prosecuting for the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), said, “It (the door) could have killed somebody….. The fact that it didn’t kill anyone is because an emergency stop was activated.”
According to Mr. Marshall, the force of metal door that the hit the actor was equal to the force applied by a small car.
