A stuntman wearing the wrong shoes kicked Jackie Chan in the chest, sending the action star to the hospital for a checkup earlier this month.

“These things just happen,” Chan said Tuesday on his Web site. “I always put safety first when filming, but still, sometimes things just go wrong. It was just an ordinary accident. The stuntman working with me had on the wrong shoes and I got hurt.”

The 51-year-old actor was injured while shooting the action-comedy “Rob-B-Hood” in Hong Kong.

The injury was painful but doctors said Chan was in “good shape.” He continued to feel pain for several days after the March 23 accident, but he is improving, according to the Web site.

Chan’s films include the “Rush Hour” movies, “The Medallion” and “Shanghai Knights.”
