Jessica Hsuan and Michael Tao were filming a scene from new TVB drama Pearl on the Palm in Sai Kung. The scene they were filming revolves around Michael saving Jessica from an explosion, but Michael was hurt. He was "stabbed" in the back by a piece of wood. Michael and Jessica went to an abandoned house to pay ransom but it was a bomb trap. As a result from hurting his back, Michael's character will be paralyzed from this accident.
The crew prepped the scene well, applying all necessary precautions to prevent any accident from happening. However, Jessica was accidentally hurt when a wooden box fell to the ground. The box contains props for the bomb and burnt the edge of Jessica's foot. Jessica was in pain and her ankle was swollen.
Pearl on the Palm will wrap up filming at the end of the month. Michael reveals that they have another scene which involves fire which they have not filmed yet. Jessica shares that she will be taking a break after she completes filming for this series. Jessica says, "Last year I already said I would take it, but Bobby Au Yeung told me to participate in A Pillow Case of Mystery II, so I did! This year I'm not gonna film anymore! Actually I arranged a trip with my old classmates, but because of the news on H1N1 Influenza, I am a little disappointed! Because the old classmates brought their kids along too, we planned it all and now I'm not even sure if there will be another chance to make the trip work out!"
