July 27, 2005: Smallville Stuntman Badly Injured

Veteran stuntman Christopher Sayour was in serious condition late Tuesday after falling from a tower during the filming of the WB Network drama "Smallville" in Vancouver.

Sayour, 35, the stunt coordinator for the show and primary stuntman for "Smallville" star Tom Welling, was badly injured in what one source described as a "freak accident" during filming Tuesday morning on location near the township of Langley.

In a statement, Sayour's family said that he had suffered "multiple fractures and internal injuries during the filming of a stunt sequence." The family also asked that the media "respect our privacy as he undergoes various procedures in the coming days."

Sayour was airlifted to Royal Columbian Hospital in nearby New Westminster in critical condition but was upgraded to serious by Tuesday evening.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with Christopher and his family during this difficult time and we wish him a full recovery," the WB and Warner Bros. Television, which produces the teen Superman drama series, said in a statement late Tuesday.

Diane Blaine, a spokeswoman for the local Langley detachment of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, confirmed that Sayour had suffered "significant injuries" after falling 37 feet from a tower.
