"I sit down to write this post with a heavy heart, because a terrible accident rocked our set on Saturday the 5th of September. My incredibly talented stunt double, Olivia Jackson, collided with a camera crane while performing a motorcycle stunt and it put her in the hospital with severe, multiple injuries," Jovovich wrote in an emotional post on Facebook Tuesday.
The South African-born stuntwoman, 32, remains in stable condition after she was injured in her face, head, shoulder and left hand and arm on Sept. 5 while filming near Johannesburg, South Africa, the films producers, Constantin Film, said in a statement to The Associated Press last week.
"Our thoughts and prayers are with Olivia and her family during her recovery process," said the film production and distribution company based in Munich, Germany.
Jovovich, whose husband, Paul W.S. Anderson, is directing the film, wrote that the cast and crew "have been totally devastated and are waiting with bated breath for news on her recovery."
The 39-year-old former model and actress added, "It's a miracle that she survived. I didn’t know her very well, as we were all just getting going with the film, but the few times we rehearsed together, I really looked up to her because she danced through the choreography, beautiful and graceful."
Though Jackson is currently stable and being monitored by South African doctors, according to Jovovich, the actress asked her Facebook fans and friends to pray for the injured stuntwoman.
"I would really appreciate it if you would take a moment out of your busy days ahead and pray for Olivia's full recovery too. She needs all the help she can get right now and every bit of the good energy we can send," she wrote.
Jackson's husband, David Grant, also a stunt performer, wrote last Tuesday on Facebook that his wife "has been making steady progress and your thoughts and good vibes are all working so please keep them up!"
He added, "She's my inspiration and my world and one tuff little mother f-----!"
