Radcliffe's Stunt Double 'Paralysed'

DANIEL RADCLIFFE's stunt double wept after he was told he will never walk again following an accident on the set of the new HARRY POTTER movie, according to reports.
David Holmes was hospitalised in January (09) with a back injury after falling from a harness at Leavesden Studios, near Watford, Hertfordshire, where he was practising flying scenes for the forthcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
The 25-year-old had surgery at the hospital, which specialises in spinal injuries.
Holmes' family published a message on his personal Facebook page to let friends know he was confident of a recovery: "David wants to thank everyone for their kind thoughts and wishes. And don't worry... the stunt-runt will be back."
But now doctors have delivered the devastating news that Holmes will be confined to a wheelchair and will never be able to walk again, according to Britain's The People newspaper.
A source tells the publication, "David is struggling to come to terms with the news. It's terrible news but his family and friends are trying to offer him as much support as they can.
"He is young and was very good at his job. But his life will be completely altered now."
But Holmes refuses to give up hope, despite the doctors' diagnosis.
The source adds, "Although David has been told he'll never walk again he is still not giving up hope. Deep down he knows it's unlikely but it's still early days and so he's not giving up completely."
