30 of the most dangerous movie stunts 1

A sequel to the 1978 film Drunken Master, Drunken Master II stars Jackie Chan as Wong Fei-hung, a martial arts master and folk hero who uses drunken boxing style to beat up his enemies. During a fight scene in a steel factory, Chan was knocked backwards onto a pile of real hot coals. He then did a “crab walk” on the coals, severely burning both of his hands. Not content with how it looked the first time, Chan did the stunt one more time.

An outtake of the stunt gone wrong is shown during the closing credits of the film, and it captures how the crew members quickly extinguish the fire on Chan’s costume following the extremely perilous stunt.
