Hollywood, June 28 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Stuntman Jeremy Fitzgerald was injured on the set of the movie “Avengers.” Fitzgerald is an accomplished stuntman having successfully played roles in about 100 movies. Some of the notable ones are Spider-Man 3, Sin City, Live Free and Die Hard.
On the set of the Avengers, Fitzgerald was supposed to complete a daring stunt involving a fall from a 30-foot building. The accident happened during the preparation for the stunt.
The Hollywood Reporter stated that Fitzgerald “caught his foot on the way down, causing his head to slam into a brick.” Though Fitzgerald sustained some injury after the accident, he avoided more severe injury when he missed hitting his head against a rain gutter.
Fitzgerald lost part of his scalp to the accident. When he was taken to the hospital, doctors bandaged his head and released him shortly afterwards. The report says Fitzgerald got back to work shortly after he was discharged from the hospital.
The movie is the production of Marvel. The movie features array of stars including Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr., Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Mark Ruffalo.
