Harry Potter Stuntman Injured In Film Set Explosion

A stuntman who serves as the stunt double for Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has been "seriously injured" during an explosion on the set of the series' latest film, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," according to a report from the Daily Mirror.

The 25-year-old man was performing an aerial stunt and crashed to the ground after a planned explosion went wrong. The Daily Mirror quotes a source saying the stuntman was talking after the accident, but there are fears he's paralyzed after he said he couldn't feel anything from the waist down.

The Press Association confirms with an East of England Ambulance Service spokesman that a man in his 20s had been injured on the set:

He said: "Paramedics were called to Leavesden Studios after a man in his 20s sustained a significant back injury. He was stabilised at the scene and taken to Watford General Hospital."
