His left brow ridge and forehead were taped with gauze. His right index finger was also bandaged.
Vincent said, “My head still hurts. They will do a CT scan on me later to see if my brain is alright. I’m pretty sure that I’m okay. The doctor said there’s a minor cut on my left eyelid. Everything happened so suddenly so I’m not sure where I got hit in the head, but I do know that it’s very swollen now.”
The actor expressed his concerns about impeding the filming schedule for “Fatal Resurrection”, and also said he felt awful for worrying his family.
