Ronda Rousey revealed that she almost lost her finger in a freak accident on Tuesday when shooting for a show for FOX.

According to the wrestler, she was in the middle of finishing a take when a boat door fell on her hand. Initially, she thought that she “jammed her fingers" however, it was not the case as it was visibly disfigured.

Rousey was then rushed to the hospital where doctors reattached the bone and tendons with plates and screws. The 32-year-old then took to Instagram to she her horrifying ordeal, writing: 

"So the word is out I nearly lost my finger shooting @911onfox. Freak accident, first take of the day a boat door fell on my hand, I thought I just jammed my fingers so I finished the take before looking (I know it sounds crazy, but I’m used to live audiences and never showing pain unless I’m supposed to) after a break in the action I told our director the situation and was rushed via ambulance to the hospital where they promptly reattached my bone and tendon with a plate and screws. I returned to filming the next day and finished my scenes before returning home to recover. Modern medicine amazes me, I already had 50% range of motion back in 3 days. There’s so much more than I can write here, stayed tuned via @rondarouseydotcom for the full story. And of course tune in to see how well I can act like my finger didn’t just fall off in this upcoming season of @911onfox"
