‘The Dark Knight Rises’ stunt goes terribly wrong in Scotland

There was another accident on set of The Dark Knight Rises last night, though this one wasn’t as minor as the previous one. A parachutist crashed through the roof of someone’s home in Cairngorm Gliding Club, Feshiebridge in Scotland. Press and Journal has the full report.

Pavel Satny, a professional photographer who has a home there, was in his garden around 8.30pm when the surprise visitor dropped in. The stuntman went through the roof of the chalet next door and got wedged there.

Mr Satny said: “It was incredible. I’m amazed he survived. There were five parach-utists overhead. I was busy watching one of the other men, as it looked as if he was going to land in the forest next door. All of a sudden, out of the corner of my eye, I saw another man fall straight down into the roof next door. He dropped just like a stone. I didn’t know what to do – whether to get my ladder or my wife! I got my ladder and made my way to help him. A paramedic from the crew arrived and helped him. He seemed OK. He told me that it was so windy and he just couldn’t control his parachute. It was all over in about 15 minutes. He was so, so lucky. He could have easily died.”

Thankfully, the stuntman was OK! Another big stunt is planned to take place in Scotland, later this month. Hit up the source link to read the full article, but be careful, there are some minor spoilers.
