Stunt Guys on Sandler Flick Injured at Univ. Studios

LOS ANGELES (AP) - An accident on the set of Adam Sandler's latest comedy burned two stuntmen, officials said Monday. One person was burned on his hands and legs and another on his back during filming on the Universal Studios back lot, said Los Angeles County Fire Inspector Sam Padilla.

Both victims, whose identities were not released, were taken to a hospital, he said. One was in serious but stable condition and the other in stable condition at Grossman Burn Center in Sherman Oaks, said hospital spokeswoman Debbie Groveman. No fire was reported, and officials were investigating, Padilla said.

The injuries occurred during the filming of a scene for ''You Don't Mess with the Zohan,'' said Steve Elzer, a spokesman for Columbia TriStar Motion Picture Group, which is distributing the movie. ''Our thoughts right now are with the stuntmen and their families and we hope that each recovers swiftly from their injuries,'' Elzer said in a statement.

Sandler visited the hospital Monday evening to check on the stuntmen, KCAL-TV reported.
