Transformers 3 Extra Injured

Animal-rights activist Michael Bay is being criticized today for transforming an extra into a stunt person on the Indiana set of Transformers 3. Twenty-four-year-old aspiring actress Gabriela Cedillo — who works as a bank teller and had no previous stunt work experience — was being paid $25 to drive her own car in a high-speed chase for the film on Wednesday when a metal object flew through her windshield and "sliced through her skull." She was transported via helicopter to a nearby hospital where she remains in critical condition. [Deadline, HR, Jalopnik]
