Mel Gibson's 33-year-old son Chris needed skin grafts after suffering burns while working on the set of the film 108 Costuras in Sonora, Mexico.

The son of the Lethal Weapon star, who was working as a cameraman on the baseball-based film, was hospitalized after the June 4 accident on his foot, the Spanish outlet Reversos reported. He subsequently returned to the U.S. for further treatment of the injury.
