Harry Potter Stuntman Seriously Injured

January 29, 2009

UK's The Daily Mirror reports that Daniel Radcliffe's stunt double suffered a serious injury in a set explosion yesterday for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I.

The 25-year-old was rehearsing a flying sequence using a harness when he was sent plummeting by the blast, which was part of the stunt. He was conscious after smashing to the ground but told horrified colleagues: "I can't feel my legs."

"He told crew members who went to help him he couldn’t feel anything from the waist down. Everyone is just hoping he makes a good recovery. It has come as a terrible shock," said a source.

Paramedics were called to Leavesden Studios and the stuntman was taken to hospital amid fears he may have been paralysed.

A spokesman for the studio said: "We can confirm a member of the Harry Potter production was injured in an accident. We are awaiting further news. Out of respect for the family we are unable to comment further."
