An accident on the set of Adam Sandler’s latest comedy burned two stuntmen, officials said Monday.
One person was burned on his hands and legs and another on his back during filming on the Universal Studios back lot, said Los Angeles County Fire Inspector Sam Padilla. Both victims, whose identities were not released, were taken to a hospital in moderate condition, he said.
No fire was reported, and officials were investigating, Padilla said.
The injuries occurred during the filming of a scene for “You Don’t Mess with the Zohan,” said Steve Elzer, a spokesman for Columbia TriStar Motion Picture Group, which is distributing the movie.
“Our thoughts right now are with the stuntmen and their families and we hope that each recovers swiftly from their injuries,” Elzer said in a statement.
