Remember in June 2014 when Harrison Ford broke his leg on the set of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens"? Well, he wasn't the only person injured on the set that day.
Director J.J. Abrams told Jimmy Fallon that he broke his back when trying to lift the door that fell and broke Harrison's leg.
"It felt like I was doing one of those Incredible Hulk, trying to lift a car off a friend, someone you love. Except I was not the Hulk. ... I could not lift the door, and I broke my back," J.J. Abrams said on "The Tonight Show."
