An actor is recovering after another accident on the set of the Broadway musical “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark.”

A spokesman for the production says the actor, identified by The New York Times as Daniel Curry was hurt during Thursday night’s show at the Foxwoods Theatre. His ankle got caught in a lift, and he had to be sawed out of the stage. The performance was then canceled.

The production was plagued with accidents and injuries in its early days, but underwent a reboot that included new safety protocols.

The actor is hospitalized in serious condition, but the extent of his injuries is not clear. The Daily News reported that he will not lose his foot.
