According to WSVN, “A spokesman for the production said that the stuntman suffered a broken pelvis, but he has had surgery, is feeling a lot better and can’t wait to get back to doing what he loves.”

Here is more from TMZ Sports:

Ft. Lauderdale Fire Chief Stephen Gollan tells TMZ Sports the incident happened on Saturday morning, when a video crew was shooting in the area of Las Olas Blvd. and Andrews Ave.

“A stunt during that event did not go as planned resulting in a hard landing of a parachutist that jumped from the Hyatt Hotel,” Gollan said in a statement.

Thankfully Pastrana is expected to make a full recovery. Get well soon, TP.
