Actor Brad Pitt became a real-life hero during a film shoot in Scotland last week, The Scottish Sun reports, rescuing a woman from being trampled.
The incident took place Thursday on the set of “World War Z,” when more than 700 extras were reportedly packed into George Square in Glasgow to film a zombie invasion scene. The woman apparently fell down as hundreds of extras were fleeing the invasion, and Pitt stepped in to get her back on her feet.
An eyewitness is quoted as saying: "It was total chaos as 700 extras were trying to get down the street — they were banging into moving cars, cameras and military who were carrying heavy machine guns. Lots of people hurt themselves, and Brad came to the rescue of a woman who slipped. I don’t think she could believe it when Brad picked her up.”
The witness added: "He didn’t have time to speak to her as it was mid-shoot. But she said afterwards how grateful she was, despite having a badly grazed knee."
According to the story, it was revealed that dozens of extras have been injured during the difficult film shoot, including a number of broken bones.
