Daniel Radcliffe's stunt double wept after he was told he will never walk again following an accident on the set of the new Harry Potter movie, according to reports.

David Holmes was hospitalized in January with a back injury after falling from a harness at Leavesden Studios, near Watford, Hertfordshire, where he was practicing flying scenes for the forthcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

The 25-year-old had surgery at the hospital, which specializes in spinal injuries.

Holmes' family published a message on his personal Facebook page to let friends know he was confident of a recovery: "David wants to thank everyone for their kind thoughts and wishes. And don't worry... the stunt-runt will be back."
