The stunt coordinator on the CBS reboot of “MacGyver” was seriously injured in an incident on the set of the show in Atlanta, Variety reports.
The report quotes a statement from CBS TV Studios saying: “We have learned about an injury to stunt coordinator Justin Sundquist that occurred late Monday on the set of ‘MacGyver’ in Atlanta. The production team is cooperating with the authorities investigating the accident, and our primary concern at this time is Justin’s health and well-being.”
Variety adds: “According to sources, Sundquist suffered a head injury after he fell off of a moving vehicle. He was subsequently put into a medically induced coma due to the nature of the injury and has remained hospitalized ever since.”
The report also notes: “Just last year, Sundquist sued CBS and CBS TV Studios due to another injury he suffered on the set of ‘Hawaii Five-O.’ In that incident, Sundquist was struck by a moving vehicle while filming a scene involving a carjacking in a parking garage.”
