Injured Stuntman to Rejoin 'Spider-Man' Musical


Christopher Tierney who has been treated at a rehabilitation center after a stage accident will resume rehearsals with other cast on April 25.

A stuntman who was badly injured in Broadway's "Spider-Man" musical is marking his recovery by rejoining the cast next week. Christopher Tierney suffered several broken ribs, a fractured elbow, a bruised lung, three fractured vertebrae and a cracked skull when he fell from a ledge during a showing of "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" in December 2010.

Following the accident, Tierney underwent back surgery and spent Christmas in hospital - but after several months undergoing treatment at a rehabilitation center, Tierney is now fighting fit. He is expected to resume rehearsals with the rest of the cast next Monday, April 25 and perform on the show's opening night in June.

Producer Michael Cohl tells the Associated Press, "His back's fine. They've taken the bolts and the nuts and everything out."
