Hugh Jackman Injured On Oprah’s Australian Set
Wolverine star Hugh Jackman was treated for a serious eye injury after a stunt depacle on set of Oprah’s Australian TV special, according to Radar Online.
Jackman rappelled toward the stage at the Sydney Opera House but failed to slow down as he neared the landing spot. He came to an abrupt halt when his leg struck a studio light, forcing a piece of debris into his eye, which started bleeding. He immediately left the stage and received treatment from paramedics.
“I’ve never been hugged by a paramedic,’’ said Jackman before placing an icepack on his eye.
Jackman’s two children, who were watching in the audience, were visibly upset but everyone is OK.
As expected, pics of the incident are floating around on Twitter.
