CANADA — (Scroll down for video) – Vancouver Police say a female stunt driver has died on the set of Deadpool during ‘a stunt on a motorcycle.’
VPD officers are at the scene, along with officers from WorkSafeBC.
The scene was near the Jack Poole Plaza and the Shaw Tower.
Global News reported: The female rider was on a motorcycle when something went wrong, sending the motorcycle airborne and crashing through the glass of the Shaw Tower ground floor studio.
Witnesses told Global News they did not hear the motorcycle braking before the incident.
“People were running on the sidewalk, the motorcycle comes flying across the street, looks like from a ramp because it was in the air,” said one witness. “[The rider was] standing on the bike, slams into that building, clearly hit and out-of-control and clearly not planned.”
“It was so out-of-control, it looked like an accident.
