Candace Cameron Bure is looking back on the stunt she performed on Netflix's Fuller House that she says went terribly wrong.

During a recent appearance on Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber's How Rude, Tanneritos! podcast, the actress, 48, revealed that she "almost died" while filming a stunt involving a zipline in the streamer's revival series.

Bure went on to explain that her character, D.J. Tanner, wanted to do an American Ninja Warrior course in the living room. After she went through the course, Bure was to finish by riding a "zip line diagonally" across the length of the set and land on a platform.

“But during rehearsal, the rig was not set up correctly and there was no safety stop on the end of it," she recalled. “So, when I landed off the zipline and stopped, the whole mechanism — which is all metal and very, very heavy — slid right off the track and came right next to my head with an inch.”

After the mechanism missed Bure's head, Barber shared how it "dented the floor," leaving a "big gash" and "broke the stairs."

“If I just even shifted my weight the tiniest bit, it would have probably broken my neck, like landed right on top of my head," Bure added, noting how her onscreen love interest, Scott Weinger, watched everything go down and couldn't react fast enough to warn people on set.

After the traumatic moment, the Great American Family actress said that Mark Sandrowski, who was directing that week's episode, had a "look on his face" that was "so serious" before calling for a short break.

"The stunt guy was fired," she continued. "And Mark's like, 'We're not doing this stunt. Like, redo the whole set, because we're not doing that stunt anymore.'"

PEOPLE has reached out to Netflix for comment.

Netflix's Fuller House ran from 2016 to 2020 and was a reboot of the beloved ’80s-’90s sitcom Full House, which featured widower Danny Tanner (Bob Saget) raising three daughters with the help of his brother-in-law Jesse (John Stamos) and best friend Joey (Dave Coulier).

The spinoff series centered on Danny’s eldest daughter, D.J. (Bure), a 30-something widow bringing up three kids of her own with the help of her sister Stephanie (Sweetin) and childhood BFF Kimmy Gibbler (Barber).

While the series largely focused on the three women, Stamos, Saget, Coulier and Lori Loughlin made several cameos throughout the show’s run.
