NEW YORK (AP) - An actor on the set of the Broadway musical "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" has been injured during a performance.
A spokesman for the show says the actor suffered an injury during the Thursday night performance, which was immediately halted. The actor, who was taken to Bellevue Hospital with a serious leg injury, was not identified.
Fire officials say they responded to the Foxwoods Theatre on West 42nd Street shortly after 9 p.m. to treat a man whose leg got caught in equipment backstage.
The show's spokesman, Rick Miramontez, says more information will be made available Friday.
It was just the latest in a series of accidents that have left several actors in the stunt-heavy $75 million show hurt or hospitalized.
