While shooting 'Trauma,' actress Aimee Garcia threw herself into a fight scene and broke her finger, she said on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM ET on NBC). But, fortunately, her work on the NBC show about first responders enabled her to treat the injury herself.

"This happened on set," Garcia said, showing her broken finger to Natalie Morales. "I was doing a scene where my ex-military boyfriend gets in a fight, and it was scripted that I just stand there ... I just got involved. I pulled one actor off of another and they loved it. They said, 'Keep doing it.' We did it 12 times and I didn't realize on the first take I broke my finger."

Garcia said she was able to draw from her experience on the medical drama and attend to her injury. "I started giving myself medical attention. I'm like, 'I need a splint and if I can have some ibuprofen,'" she said.
