Picture a group of people together on a stage set, preparing to film an episode for a popular television show. While filming, a sudden blast of wind causes a piece of lighting equipment to fall and strike an actress, causing her to fall and strike her head on the ground. Everyone rushes to her aid as an ambulance is summoned. Once paramedics arrive, they put her carefully on a gurney and load her onto the ambulance; taking her to the hospital to treat her wounds. This might sound like an episode to a television program or a scene from a movie to some; however, for Kristin Chenoweth, this was what really happened to her while filming the season premiere to “The Good Wife.” What is worse, the actress has just announced she will not be able to return to the show due to her injuries.

When shooting began, no one could have imagined the sequence of events that were about to occur nor the ramifications of it’s’ conclusion. According to a statement to People magazine, they said at the time that “a gust of wind blew a lighting silk out of place striking [Chenoweth].” A source told TMZ that when she fell, she hit her head on the ground. Chenoweth was put on to a gurney strapped in and wearing a neck brace, for safety, and then put onto an ambulance to take her to the nearest hospital.
