Another ‘Harry Potter’ stuntman injured

HollywoodNews.com: A year after Daniel Radcliffe’s body double on the “Harry Potter” films broke his back in a paralyzing fall from a harness while filming a flying scene, yet another stuntman on the films has reportedly been hospitalized after an action scene for “Deathly Hallows” went wrong.
Stuntman Greg Powell, 56, broke his shoulder during a motorcycle crash last week when his trench coat was trapped in a wheel and sent him flying off the bike during filming in Hertfordshire, England. Fans of the books can assume this was part of the aerial fight scene early on in Deathly Hallows, involving Hagrid on Sirius Black’s flying motorbike before himself crashing to the ground. Let’s hope that Powell, like Hagrid, makes a quick recovery!
