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.
