Video has now surfaced showing a stunt double in the Broadway "Spider Man" show falling 30 feet after his harness rope snapped during a performance:
The cable to stunt man Christopher Tierney's harness snapped during a scene in which Spider-Man rescues his love interest, Mary Jane, one of the show's performers told the AP. It was unclear if Tierney was properly harnessed when the cable snapped. The performer said the show's actors are responsible for hooking themselves up to harnesses used for aerial stunts.
Mariana Leung, a fashion blogger wrote on the website NearSay.com that she witnessed the accident from the front row of the balcony.
"There was a scream," Leung wrote. "A voice yelled, 'Someone call 911!' Then there was a silence. A minute later, the stage was still dark. Then there was an announcement that the show would be delayed. A few minutes later, a second announcement that the performance would not continue. The lights came up."
"All signs were good as he was taken to the hospital for observation," a show spokesman said.
