I guess injuries sort of come with the territory when you sign up to be a stuntman, but getting stabbed with a bayonet? That's exactly what just happened to a 35-year-old British stuntman working on the Brad Pitt World War II movie, Fury. While he's reportedly in stable condition, the shoulder wound was serious enough for the man to be airlifted from the film’s set in the British countryside to a nearby hospital.
Yowch! Bet that guy's wishing he went into investment banking right about now. Still, as far as on set accidents go, a bayonet to the shoulder ain't so bad -- especially not compared to these 5 famous film stunts gone horrifically wrong.

Newsflash: Tom Cruise isn't actually a fighter pilot. That's why famed aerobatic pilot Art Scholl was called in to do the in-flight camera work for the "flat spin" scene; tragically, the 53-year-old's plane malfunctioned and he crashed into the Pacific Ocean off the Southern California coast. The plane was never found.
