DBS was pulled out of lake
It all started with the destruction of an Aston DBS, but after a week of mysterious happenings on the set of the new James Bond movie insiders are starting to worry the film is jinxed.
Today it emerged that a stuntman is now fighting for his life after a third car smash on the set of action film Quantum of Solace near Italy’s Lake Garda.
Stunt driver Aris Comninos, 40, had to be cut free from an Alfa Romeo 159 and airlifted to hospital with head injuries.
The incident occurred when another Alfa, carrying two dummies, was steered by remote control into a truck.
But it all went wrong when the car bounced off a rock and into the stuntmen’s car – pushing it though a wall and almost off a cliff.
Another stuntman was slightly injured after the incident.
In a second incident on Monday, during the shooting of a car chase, a stuntman was injured.
The first incident happened early on Saturday when Jonathan Dunn Fraser, an employee of Aston Martin, cheated death while delivering the DBS to the set.
As he was driving down a winding road the car mysteriously skidded off the road, went through a guardrail and into a lake.
Mr Dunn Fraser said: ‘I was at the wheel and I remember the road was wet. I wasn’t going fast. Suddenly the car went off the road. Then I sank into very cold water.’
A week ago there was another calamity when a man on a bicycle who stopped at the set to watch filming had a heart attack and died.
After Saturday's freak accident the DBS had to be recovered
