Christopher Tierney, who was seriously hurt last week while performing in Broadway's "Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark," has left the hospital, his father said.
Tim Tierney told CNN Wednesday his 31-year-old son was discharged from Manhattan's Bellevue Hospital Tuesday night and is now being treated at a rehabilitation center.
The performer, one of several actors to play the musical's titular web-slinger each show, suffered four broken ribs, a hairline fracture in his skull, a broken scapula, a bruised lung, three cracked vertebrae and broken bones below his elbow in a mishap during a preview Dec. 20, the elder Tierney told CNN.
Several performances were subsequently canceled while new safety measures were implemented.
Tierney is one of four actors injured during rehearsals or performances of director Julie Taymor's $65 million show, which boasts unprecedented stunts for a stage musical and a soundtrack by U2's Bono and The Edge.
