Halle hurt on film set

Halle Berry was taken to hospital after an accident on the set of Catwoman.

Production spokesman Joe Everett said the actress was injured by a piece of set equipment while filming a running scene.

Everett said the accident was quite minor and Berry is has returned to the shoot in Vancouver.

He denied reports that she was hit in the head with a microphone boom and spent six hours in a hospital waiting room.

"She had to manoeuvre past a piece of equipment, a set piece and she didn't quite run past it, but she's just fine," he said. "She was taken to hospital, treated and released and was now back at work."

Berry broke her arm last year while shooting Gothica in Montreal and injured her eye on the set of the Bond film Die Another Day.
