UPDATE: Injured Spider-Man Broadway star Christopher Tierney will reportedly leave rehab on Wednesday and recover at his New Hampshire home.


There are obviously some serious safety hazards when trying to pull-off a Spider-Man show on Broadway!

But even a stunt gone terribly wrong won't keep a certain actor off the stage for long...

Christopher Tierney's father, Tim, says that his son is now walking and wants to return to the show, CNN reports.

The 31-year-old fell more than 20-feet doing a stunt during a preview performance on Monday. Following successful back surgery on Tuesday, he took his first steps on Friday.

The actor suffered four broken ribs, a hairline fracture in his skull, a broken scapula, a bruised lung, three cracked vertebrae and broken bones below his elbow, Tim Tierney told CNN.

Meanwhile, the elder Tierney was enjoying all the love and support from his son's cast members.

"It's like one big happy family," said Tim Tierney. "I never got so many hugs from so many good-looking people in my entire life."

Tierney is considered in stable condition in the ICU and will find out Monday if he can go home or not.
