Giant Injury on Set of "America's Got Talent"

8/27/2008 6:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Paramedics rushed to the L.A. set of "America's Got Talent" this weekend when a stunt involving a 7'3" giant went terribly wrong.

TMZ has obtained footage moments before the incident showing a contestant named George the Giant bound by chains and hung upside down from the rafters -- but that's where the tape cuts. Moments later, the footage starts again, and George can be seen being strapped into a gurney and wearing an oxygen mask while a team of medics tend to his well being.

Moments later, he was rushed to a local hospital for "complications" -- no word on what those "complications" are.

George was scheduled to appear on tonight's episode, but at this point, it is unclear -- and unlikely -- that he'll make the show.

I think they dropped him on his head. Hopefully, he didn't put too big a dent in the floor.

I know this guy! His full name is George McArthur and he played "Colossus" in the movie, Big Fish. I was on the crew and used to hang out with him all the time. He's a magician and fire-eater..... amongst many other things. Nice guy, too. Too bad he apparently had an accident.
