A man suffers a broken arm and leg in London…

A man who was helping put together MADONNA’s forthcoming LONDON shows has been injured in an accident.

The man is reported to have fallen 30 feet and broken an arm and leg (August 6) while helping to prepare for the star’s forthcoming dates at London Earl’s Court (August 18-19).

An ambulance spokesman told BBC Online: “We received a call from Earl’s Court at 1pm to say that a man had fallen approximately 30ft. An ambulance and air ambulance were called and crews were on the scene for around two hours because there were difficulties moving the patient. His main injuries appeared to be to his shoulder and arm.”

Madonna‘s manager added: “The entire crew, performers and staff, especially Madonna, were very saddened to hear about the accident but are hopeful that he will make a full recovery.”
