Stuntman in Broadway 'Spider-Man' Fell
One of the actors playing "Spider-Man" in the superhero's new Broadway musical was admitted to hospital last week after he broke both his wrists in a terrifying on-stage accident. "Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark" is due to premiere in New York later this year, but producers unveiled some of the show's spectacular stunts early to a small group of ticket brokers and sales agents.
But the presentation when horribly wrong when Kevin Aubin, one of several stuntmen to don the Spider-Man costume in the production, was injured in front of the horrified audience. Aubin was whipped into the air as part of an aerial stunt, but he came crashing down at the front of the stage and snapped both of his wrists as he hit the floor. The show was halted and the actor was admitted to a local hospital for treatment.
One of the show's producers, Michael Cohl, has now spoken out to insist all safety procedures are being followed correctly. In an email to the New York Post, he writes, "With a show as complex as this, safety is the top priority for everyone at Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark."
