Statham Almost Drowns On Set Of EXPENDABLES 3, Shrugs Off Death And Returns To Work Instead.
What's a bit of water in the lungs? Nothing at all if you're former British national dive team member Jason Statham, apparently. Reports have surfaced in Europe that Statham was taken to hospital yesterday, the action star pulled unconscious from a pond after a stunt gone wrong.

What happened? Well, there was a fall into the water, apparently, and a stunt man was all set up to go when Statham insisted on doing the stunt himself. Former diver, puddle of water, what could go wrong? Well, something did, evidently, as he never came up and had to be fished out of the water by support crew. But mere water is no match for Statham who, after being checked over in hospital, returned to work later in the day.

That's commitment right there, but seriously, he should really be more careful.

I can just see Statham saying "Water is a C*nt" then head butting it dry

Very strange,,,a former diver and swimmer. He must have hit something in the water that knocked him out. Happy that he is ok

I'm curious if this shot will be in the movie.

He almost drowned in a kiddie pool because he is 5'7.

It'll be interesting to see if it is.

Jackie Chan has had quite a few movies where the actual take of a certain stunt that injured him made into the final cut.
