There was an accident Saturday, 2/15/03, where one of the stunt actors fell from the zip cable...the part of the building fight scene where the bad guy zips down the cable from the rooftop to the ground after Indy and Marion jump down through the marketplace. He was helicoptered off to a hospital.

It goes without saying that the last 2 shows that followed were cancelled for the day.

MousePad member Davidscot witnessed an accident at the Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular on Saturday, March 15. He said, "During the part where Indy hangs from a tow line, for some reason, the line snagged sending him into the air. He landed on the pavement on his neck. He didn't move and many people rushed around him and immediately put up a barrier so the audience couldn't see him."

Another MousePad member watched as the actor, Kyle McDuffie, was transported to a local hospital by helicopter. According to the Orlando Sentinel McDuffie was treated for injuries to his head and shoulders. Theme Park Insider reports that the actor is in critical condition, but that his injuries are not life-threatening. A Disney spokesperson said that the "equipment was functioning properly," and that Disney is evaluating the cause of the accident.
