Eddie Cheung was pelted with shards of broken glass while shooting an explosion scene for TVB new series Sniper Attack 2013 at TVB City, leaving him with a bleeding ear.The rain of glass caused a painful cut on his ear, and he posted a picture of himself on Weibo lying on the ground wiping blood from his ear. Eddie's eyes were squeezed shut, and he exclaimed that his wound was extremely painful. Netizens left comments reminding him to be more careful.Crew were on hand to help him clean his wound.  Eddie also stated in a phone interview with The Sun that because he had prior experience with explosion scenes, he knew to turn his face away during the shoot. Otherwise, the broken glass would have flown into his face instead. He recalled: "While we were filming, I felt pain on my right ear, but I thought I'll just endure though it until the cameras stop rolling. However, it was just too painful! I started crying instantly and then my ear was bleeding. Perhaps because the ear has a lot of nerves, it was especially painful. Luckily, no glass pieces went into my earhole. It's a minor injury, so I didn't have to go to the hospital."
