Robert Pattinson was reportedly injured on the set of new movie 'The Twilight Saga: New Moon' while shooting in Canada
Robert Pattinson required medical help after a metal sign smashed into his head on a film set.
The British actor was reportedly left dazed and bruised when the advertising sign knocked him over during shooting of 'The Twilight Saga: New Moon' in Vancouver, Canada.
A source told National Enquirer magazine: "Robert had just started shooting a scene when a gust of violent wind tore a heavy metal sign from a post. It shot across location so fast no one even managed to shout a warning at Robert. It hit him on the head and he dropped to the ground lying deadly still. Cast and crew ran to help."
Worried crew members placed ice packs on Robert's head to prevent any swelling. Although the 22-year-old hunk soon came around and insisted he was OK, movie bosses were too concerned to continue the day's shooting.
The source added: "Robert finally came around. The crew put ice on the knot-sized lump on his head and by the time medics arrived he was coherent. But director Chris Weitz still cancelled filming and ordered Robert to return to his hotel. He came back to set the next day, but was still sporting a lump."
