Ten zombie actors were sent to the hospital early Tuesday after a wheeled platform at Cinespace Film Studios in Toronto shifted as the actors were moving from one area of the soundstage to another.

A total of 16 people were left injured, with seven returning to work later that day.

Ambulance staff and firemen that attended the stage collapse had to distinguish between the actors' real wounds and the bandages and fake blood that is part of their Resident Evil 5 zombie costumes.
