Hurts - Theo Hutchcraft Nearly Lost His Eye Shooting New Music Video

Hurts star Theo Hutchcraft nearly lost an eye on the set of the band's new music video after tumbling down a flight of stairs and crashing into an iron gate.

The English synthpop duo was filming the promotional video for its ironically-titled new single Blind, when Hutchcraft tripped and suffered serious injuries.

He tells U.K. publication The Daily Record, "I was running and I fell from the top of the stairs all the way down and into an iron gate. I had eight stitches and nearly had no eye. It was quite horrible. I was in Spain and went to A&E (accident and emergency room) covered in blood.

"The doctor told me another half-centimetre and I would have no eye. The anaesthetic didn't work so I felt every single stitch go in which wasn't very pleasant so I was like, 'Get me out of here.' We were making a video so I was like, 'Let's go.' Having a black eye and stitches only added to the video of the drama (sic)."

But his friends have shown no sympathy: "Everyone I've told has gone, 'Yeah, yeah.' People kept asking if I was sure I didn't just wink at the wrong girl."
