Jackie Chan is a Survivor

Jackie Chan has had a long and successful career acting in action and comedy movies.  His movies involve elaborate stunts and fight scenes.  Unlike other actors and actresses, Jackie does not like to use stuntmen in his place.  His insistence on doing his own stunts puts Jackie in many dangerous situations and has led to numerous injuries.  Few people realize that he once nearly died due to a brain injury suffered from a fall on the set of one of his movies and that as a result he then needed emergency brain surgery.  The link below will bring you to an excerpt from his autobiography in which he discusses his near death experience and subsequent surgery:
