Smallville Star Welling's Double Fighting For His Life

LATEST: SMALLVILLE star TOM WELLING's stunt double CHRIS SAYOUR is fighting for his life in a Vancouver, Canada hospital after falling from a tower while filming a scene yesterday (26JUL05).

The veteran stunt co-ordinator accidentally fell almost 40 feet (12.2 meters), according to police reports.

Sayour, 35, was airlifted to hospital in New Westminster and treated for "multiple fractures and internal injuries," according to a statement.

In a statement from the WB network behind the SUPERMAN series, bosses write, "Our thoughts and prayers are with Christopher and his family during this difficult time and we wish him a full recovery."

Production was halted yesterday after the accident. It was expected to resume today (27JUL05).

Police do not suspect foul play.

As well as working on Smallville since 2001, Sayour has also worked as a stuntman in films like I, ROBOT and THREE KINGS.
