The WWE star Ronda Rousey has almost severed her finger in a shocking accident during filming for TV drama 9-1-1. The 32-years-old, who works for the LA Fire Department in the show by mistake slammed a door against her hand and almost cracked through a tendon in her middle finger and nearly fractured her ring finger.
She was immediately taken to a San Diego hospital, with her finger almost hanging off. There, she got a metal plate and screw put in to treat the injury.
Rousey took to her Instagram page and explained what exactly happened. Her Instagram post reads:
“So the word is out I nearly lost my finger shooting @911onfox,” she wrote.
“Freak accident, first take of the day a boat door fell on my hand, I thought I just jammed my fingers so I finished the take before looking (I know it sounds crazy, but I’m used to live audiences and never showing pain unless I’m supposed to) after a break in the action I told our director the situation and was rushed via ambulance to the hospital where they promptly reattached my bone and tendon with a plate and screws.
“I returned to filming the next day and finished my scenes before returning home to recover. Modern medicine amazes me, I already had 50% range of motion back in 3 days. There’s so much more than I can write here, stayed tuned via @rondarouseydotcom for the full story. And of course tune in to see how well I can act like my finger didn’t just fall off in this upcoming season of @911onfox.”
