NEW YORK (AP) - The actor badly hurt after plunging more than 30 feet in front of a shocked audience at the Broadway musical “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” has left rehab.
Christopher Tierney walked out of the Rusk Institute of Rehabilitation Medicine on Wednesday and went to his home in Manhattan. Tierney will undergo outpatient therapy and hopes to return to the stage when he feels strong enough.
Tierney suffered a fractured skull, a fractured shoulder blade, four broken ribs and three broken vertebrae Dec. 20 when his safety harness was accidentally left unclipped during a preview performance.
The $65 million show has been plagued by technical glitches, cancellations, money woes and three other injuries, including a concussion and two broken wrists. Last month, a lead actress bowed out.
