    Default Notable cases of mishaps while filming wuxia movies/series?

    Moreso than generic dramatic acting, filming a wuxia movie or TV series comes with inherent dangers. Between wire-dangling high up in the air, pyrotechnic explosions, and swinging around prop weapons, chances are there have been a number cases of mishaps occurring during the production of a wuxia movie or series. Are there any notable cases of serious injury or even fatalities occurring among actors during the making of a wuxia movie or series?

    I remember watching an interview with Donnie Yen when he said he tore the ligaments in his arm while filming Iron Monkey.
    Also Michelle Yeoh damaged her thigh while filming Wing Chun.
