Family Rips 'Transformers' Investigation - 'Ridiculous'

The family of the woman partially paralyzed on the set of "Transformers 3" is blasting the government agency that cleared producers of any wrongdoing ... claiming their findings are "ridiculous."

In a statement issued today, the family of 24-year-old Gabriela Cedillo said they were "deeply saddened and disappointed" that the Indiana Occupational Safety and Health Administration cleared Paramount simply because they used a licensed welder to set up a vehicular stunt on Sept. 1. 

The family claims, "The mere fact that the welding was performed by a 'certified welder' ... does not in any way suggest that the weld was performed properly." The family continues, "In fact the evidence is clear that it was done in a slip-shod fashion."

The statement concludes, "It is completely irresponsible for even a local government bureaucrat to rush to such sloppy conclusions."

An $50 non-union extra should not be in hazards way. This is permanent injury people! Stop saying they are out for money. If this were Sumner Redstone's or other Executives daughter - heads would roll. These horrible Transformers movies make a billion plus each. No respect anywhere these days.

This cleared the producers period. The family could always go after the welder and whoever certified him. If they were to find a smoking gun like do***entation that it is know that he is an idiot and lazy and does sloppy work but he is still allowed to work, well there you go. and if they could prove that the producers would have found this information easily had they bothered to look then they could possibly reopen the case about them.
