The injured individual was not breathing and did not have a pulse. Humphrey said he had fractures in both legs and one arm and was bleeding after falling from a height of 60 to 80 feet.
To restore his respiration, blood pressure, and pulse, first responders, had to shock him. "He's battling for his life," Humphrey added, adding that the crew member was in serious condition and had been sent to an unnamed regional trauma hospital.
Murphy did not say if the accident occurred inside or outside the studios, but sources say it happened at Stage 12 on the lot. The guy, who is thought to be a 30-year-old male stage technician, plummeted 30 feet above the stage from the grid. His current state is unclear.
