I've been living and working in Hong Kong since 2016 as an SEO Professional.

Most of the stunt work in the original TMNT film was done by men from Hong Kong who had no union protection. Injuries were rampant during production, and stunt actors were routinely transported back if they were hurt on location.As a result, many risky and even fatal stunts were performed without sufficient safety procedures. In one case, a stunt actor was set on fire and suffered severe burns. Another stuntman died after being hurled from a building during a stunt.During the making of the original TMNT movie, there were numerous injuries and even deaths due to a lack of union protection and safety precautions. When seeing the film, it is crucial to remember these stunt actors and respect the risks they made to bring the film to life.
