In a freak accident recently, Daniel Radcliff’s stunt double, David Holmes, 25 received serious spinal injuries. While rehearsing a flying scene for the upcoming movie, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, at the Leavesden film studios near Watford, an explosion caused Homles to fall hard to the ground.
Holmes was conscious when the crew went to his aid but told them he could not feel his legs or anything below his waist! That sounds bad, as in broken back and possible paralysis! Let’s hope for the best.
It is not yet known if Daniel Radcliff, who is in New York at the time, has been informed at this time.
David Holmes is currently being treated at The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore, North-West London. His parents are there at his side.
We wish you the best David and will be wishing for a speedy recovery! Good luck!
