Trivia:

Was almost killed while working as the stunt double for "Short Round" in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984) during the filming of the river rapids scene. The life raft in which he was riding flipped over in the turbulent water and he was trapped underneath it for some time with a faulty inflatable life vest, nearly drowning until a safety diver could reach him and pull him to safety.
