The stunt double fell during a flying sequence on set
Warner Bros. Studios confirmed that a stunt double for star Daniel Radcliffe was hospitalized Wednesday (Jan. 28) after falling during a flying scene on the set of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" being filled at Leavensden Studios in England.
"The person has been taken to [a] hospital and we are awaiting further news," the studio told People. Out of respect for his family, we are unable to comment further at this stage, but can confirm that it was not a member of the cast."
A planned explosion went off during rehearsal for an aerial stunt, causing the 25-year-old stuntman to fall. The London's Mirror quoted the man as saying that he "couldn't feel anything from the waist down."
He was rushed to Watford General Hospital. No other details have been released.
"Deathly Hallows" is the final movie installment based on the books by J.K. Rowling and will be split into two movies. Before that, fans will be able to catch the sixth part of the series, "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" worldwide beginning July 17.
