As previously reported, the Oscar winner was taken to Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles after she fell during a fight sequence on the set of her film “The Hive.” Sources told TMZ that Berry hit her head on concrete during the fall.
She was released from the hospital within hours, and TMZ is reporting that she’ll continue production on the film as planned.
Also, TMZ is reporting that her injury was not serious enough to warrant a state investigation of the workplace incident.
“The incident was not reported to Cal/OSHA and was not required to be reported,” said Peter Melton, OSHA spokesman. “She was released from the hospital quickly, so we will not be investigating.”
The OSHA official noted that his agency only looks into workplace accidents brought about by unsafe practices. “If she just fell on a concrete floor, we’re not going to go seal off the floor and say it’s dangerous,” Mr. Melton said.

The Oscar winner was rushed to Los Angeles’s Cedars-Sinai Medical Center Tuesday night after she fell on the set of her movie “The Hive” at about 10 p.m. and hit her head.
“Halle Berry suffered a minor head injury while shooting a fight sequence on the set of her film, The Hive,” says her spokesperson. “She was taken to the hospital as a precaution, but she checked out healthy and was released. She’ll continue production as planned.”
An ambulance was called to the location, reported TMZ.
Just last September, Berry broke her foot in Spain while walking in Majorca on a day off from filming.
*As time goes by, George Zimmerman, the killer of Trayvon Martin, is looking even more shadier and shadier.
Now we’re finding out that he didn’t suffer any serious head injuries in his confrontation with Travon who, Zimmerman said slammed his head against the concrete repeatedly, according to the medical report.
The just-released document states he suffered a broken nose, but no deviation of the septum, and two black eyes, The Miami Herald says.
The report fills in details of the already reported injuries Zimmerman says he suffered the night of Feb. 26 when he shot and killed the 17-year-old Trayvon, who was visiting his father in Sanford, Fla.
Zimmerman went for the checkup the day after the killing only because he needed a doctor’s note to return to work, a prosecutor said in court Friday during a new bail hearing.
Although Zimmerman’s nose was broken, he twice rejected the physician assistant’s recommendation that he see an ear, nose and throat specialist.
No stitches were needed to close the head cuts, which he was advised to clean with soap and water daily. Zimmerman reported no headaches, blurred vision or loss of hearing.
