Stuntman Injured On Set
In Motorcyle Jump Gone Wrong
3/8/2019 12:30 AM PST
A famous stuntman working on CBS’ “MacGyver” reboot had a motorcycle jump on set go horribly wrong … and land him in the hospital.
Regis Harrington pulled the jump Wednesday while shooting a scene in Atlanta … but a source on set tells us he lost control upon landing. We’re told he was immediately rushed to Atlanta Medical Center, where he was under observation in the ICU for a back injury.
The good news is, Regis — a seasoned vet who’s performed stunts for movies like “Logan,” “Jurassic World,” and “Captain America: Civil War” — tells us he’s gonna be okay.
We got ahold of him on Thursday and there was no bitterness over the stunt gone wrong.
In fact, Regis says he made a mistake while riding … and he gave the “MacGyver” crew full props for handling the accident with care and professionalism.
CBS confirmed a stunt performer felt pain in his back after a motorcycle stunt and was “transported to a hospital for diagnostic testing.”
Regis told us he’d already been released.
Stunt work … it’s a dangerous gig.
