Halle Berry Fall: Actress 'Started to Throw Up' After Accident; Released from Hospital
Actress Halle Berry started to throw up after falling on concrete, according to TMZ.
Tuesday night Berry, 45, was rushed to the hospital after suffering an injury while shooting her upcoming movie, "The Hive."
New reports say after Berry fell, she started throwing up, and that's when people around her became alarmed and called for help, TMZ said. Throwing up is a sign of a concussion.
Sources told TMZ that Berry hit her head on concrete after taking a nasty fall. She was taken to Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles around 10 p.m. There was an ambulance on scene, and it appears from TMZ' video that this is how she was transported.

Berry's rep told TMZ, ""Halle Berry suffered a minor head injury while shooting a fight sequence on the set of her film, 'The Hive.' She was taken to the hospital as a precaution, but she checked out healthy and was released. She'll continue production as planned."
According to the Huffington Post, this is not Berry's first film-related accident. In September 2011, the actress broke her foot on a day off from shooting "Cloud Atlas" in Spain. The injury forced Berry to work with a stunt double and producers to shoot the actress only from the waist up.
According to the LA Times, Berry broke her arm while filming "Gothika" in 2003 and injured her eye while shooting "Die Another Day" the previous year. In 2004, she was hospitalized after being hit on the head with lighting equipment on the set of "Catwoman."
Berry's head injury on a movie set isn't serious enough to warrant a workplace safety investigation, a state official said Wednesday, cited the LA Times.
"The incident was not reported to Cal/OSHA and was not required to be reported," said Peter Melton, agency spokesman. "She was released from the hospital quickly, so we will not be investigating."
Cal/OSHA only investigates workplace accidents caused by unsafe practices that could lead to future injuries, Melton said.
"If she just fell on a concrete floor, we're not going to go seal off the floor and say it's dangerous," Melton said.
In "The Hive," Berry plays a 911 operator trying to save an abducted girl. The movie hits theaters in 2013.
