Potter stuntman injured on Deathly Hallows set

The Press Association is reporting this evening that a stunt double for Daniel Radcliffe was injured while on the set of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows:

The 25 year old was performing an aerial sequence when he fell to the ground following an explosion which was part of the stunt, the Daily Mirror reported.

An East of England Ambulance Service spokesman confirmed a man in his 20s had been injured on set.

He said: “Paramedics were called to Leavesden Studios after a man in his 20s sustained a significant back injury. He was stabilised at the scene and taken to Watford General Hospital.”

The Mirror has a bit more information, adding that the stuntman said he could not feel his legs after falling. A rep from Leavesden Studios, where the Potter films are shot, also confirms the accident.

Our thoughts are with the stuntman and his family and we hope he makes a full recovery. We'll update you when we hear more.
