There was a critical accident on the set of Harry Potter this week. A stunt double for Harry Potter, aka Daniel Radcliffe, was harnessed in the air and doing a stunt that involved an explosion. Daniel was not involved.
More pictures after the jump….
The stunt doubles name is not being released at this time, but he is said to be 25 years old. He was harnessed when an explosion set him back. Instead of going up, he crashed to the floor. This is what the Mirror says:
“It is thought he may have been caught by the explosion and hit the ground very hard.
“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.” Paramedics were called to the studio and the stuntman was taken to hospital.”
No updates are available to his condition. There is also no word if production is shut down until the accident is investigated further. The stars of the movie, Daniel, Emma Watson and others have made no public comments. Get well soon.
