'Spider-Man' actor injured during show

An actor on the set of the Broadway musical "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" was injured during a performance Thursday night.

A spokesman for the show said the actor suffered an injury during the performance, which was immediately halted.

The actor, who was taken to Bellevue Hospital with a serious leg injury, was not identified.

Fire officials said they responded to the Foxwoods Theatre on West 42nd Street shortly after 9 to treat a man whose leg got caught in equipment backstage.

The show's spokesman, Rick Miramontez, said more information will be made available today.

It was the latest in a series of accidents that have left several actors in the stunt-heavy, $75 million show hurt or hospitalized.
