The stuntman, Joe Watts, was working on a second unit when he sustained head injuries in a fall. He has been placed in an induced coma after having been taken to a London hospital in an air ambulance. Watts was not Vin Diesel’s stunt double, as was reported by some British tabloids.
In a since-deleted social media post, his girlfriend said Monday night that he had suffered a serious head injury but was in a stable condition.
Main-unit filming resumed Tuesday, but the second unit remained closed. Universal and Warner Bros. declined to comment.
The Health and Safety Executive told Variety that a probe into what happened is underway.
