A Broadway actor who fell more than 20 feet during an aerial stunt in the musical "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark," has been released from a rehabilitation center in New York, a show spokesman said.
Christopher Tierney, 31, was released from New York University's Rusk Institute of Rehabilitation Medicine on Wednesday morning, spokesperson Sam Corbett said.
Tierney was moved into the institute after being discharged from Bellevue Hospital on December 28.
He suffered four broken ribs, a hairline skull fracture, a broken scapula, or shoulder blade; a bruised lung, three cracked vertebrae and broken bones below his elbow as a result of his fall, his father said.
"He is up," Tim Tierney said. "He is walking and just doing very well."
He noted that his son is looking forward to returning to the show.FULL STORY
