The actress was in the middle of shooting one of the key action scenes, which sees her being attacked by an unrevealed Dinosaur that is quite large. The power went out right when the massive metal mouth of this mechanical on-set prop came down on top of her, locking her inside, where she was surrounded wires and machinery used to operate the giant puppet.
Sources report that she started screaming to be set free. The crew worked hard to pry the jaws back open without damaging the very expensive prop. It took more than 15 minutes for Bryce Dallas Howard to escape this Jurassic nightmare.
There were no reported injuries. After thanking the crew profusely for saving her, Bryce Dallas Howard went right back to filming this crucial moment in the sequel, just as soon as the electricity was restored to the island location.
Jurassic World comes to theaters June 12th, 2015 and stars Ty Simpkins, Bryce Dallas Howard, Nick Robinson, Chris Pratt, Vincent D'Onofrio, Irrfan Khan, B.D. Wong, Omar Sy. The film is directed by Colin Trevorrow.
