Few serious injuries in 'Wipeout'

Has anyone been seriously injured or killed while competing on ABC's Wipeout?

No one has been killed, thankfully. Injuries? You bet. Scrapes, cuts, bruises are common. The most serious, according to the producers, have been an occasional dislocated shoulder. There also has been at least one report of a concussion.

Executive producer Matt Kunitz said in an interview with the Futon Critic website that injuries are kept to a minimum by the extreme amount of padding — 6 to 24 inches of it on the runways, the bars, everything.

Beyond that, the show has a safety coordinator, four emergency medical technicians and an ambulance, just in case.

"When we're designing the stunts," Kunitz said in the interview, "we're thinking, 'How do we make them safe?' It's a very fine line because you want a great wipeout but you don't want to hurt anybody."

  3. 'Baby Driver' literally turns heist movie genre on its ear, set to slick soundtrack

    Movies

    Buckle up for Baby Driver, a movie so full throttle cool that you want to fist bump the screen. Style is the substance of Edgar Wright's inventive heist flick, a fresh, masterful synching of music and getaway mayhem, as if La La Land's traffic jam was moving, armed and dangerous.

    Baby (Ansel Elgort) is a getaway driver for heist arranger Doc (Kevin Spacey). Plagued by tinnitus, Baby tunes out his distracting “hum in the drum” by listening to music while he drives.
