A stunt double for the Broadway musical Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark fell 30 feet on Monday evening during a preview of the show.
According to USA Today,
[Christopher] Tierney fell during a scene in which Spider-Man rescues his love interest, Mary Jane, but managed to land on his feet, the performer said. It was unclear if the actor was properly harnessed before the accident.
Tierney was taken to the hospital where he remains in stable condition.
This is the fourth accident in one month to occur on the set of the show. Another stunt double broke both of his wrists during an aerial stunt. Spider-Man’s evil love interest also was injured on stage when a rope hit her in the head causing a concussion.
The show is scheduled to open on February 7.
