The film: Die Another Day (2002)
The star: Halle Berry
The injury: Easily one of Hollywood’s most accident-prone thesps, Berry has had her arm broken on the set of Gothika, injured her eye when fragments of a smoke grenade lodged there while shooting Die Another Day and, on the same set… choked on fruit.
"She was gagging and waving her arms,” recalls Pierce Brosnan. “I banged her back, and put my arms around her to do the Heimlich, and somehow she expelled the fruit." Why 007, you do have a way with the women…
How could it have been avoided? eHow.com gives the following advice about not choking on your grub: “Take small bites. Cut food, especially meat, into small pieces. Be careful with especially dry foods, such as pretzels and bread.
Chew all food completely. Enzymes in your saliva help break down the food in advance, so that it goes down more easily. Bites should not cause difficulty in swallowing.”
As for the smoke grenade, we suggest safety goggles.
