The father of a stunt actor who fell 30 feet (9.14 meters) while playing Spider-Man on Broadway says his son is out of the hospital's intensive care unit and has begun inpatient rehabilitation.
Christopher Tierney suffered a skull fracture and cracked vertebrae in the Dec. 20 fall.
Tim Tierney says his son was able to walk with the help of a full-torso brace on Tuesday before being discharged from the hospital and transferred to a New York City rehab facility.
Christopher Tierney fell during a performance of "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark," plunging from a ledge into a stage pit despite a safety harness that should have prevented the spill.
The $65 million show _ the most expensive ever on Broadway _ canceled two preview performances then reopened after instituting new safety and security measures.
