Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark stuntman Chris Tierney will be released from a physical rehabilitation center Wednesday, according to CNN. Tierney, who was injured when he fell 20 feet while performing a stunt, sustained a hairline skull fracture, four broken ribs, a broken scapula, a bruised lung, three cracked vertebrae, and a broken arm. Two subsequent performances of the high-flying musical were canceled while new safety measures could be implemented.
In an interview set to air tonight, Tierney tells Dana Tyler that the last thing he remembers from his fall “was just going, ‘Oh, God.’” According to the segment, Tierney wants to return to his role in Spider-Man.
