Recently uncovered video footage indicates that Tom Cruise has been injured while filming a stunt for Mission: Impossible 6 in London. The actor is well-known for insisting on doing almost all of his own stunts.
The footage was obtained by TMZ. It shows the actor attempting to leap from one building to another but falling short. His body slammed into the side of the building, after which he hoisted himself up onto the roof and limped to crew members, almost collapsing along the way.

TMZ obtained a second video showing Cruise faltering doing another building stunt jump (the sound of his body actually hitting the building is very distinctive), which raises further questions about how seriously he has been hurt.
The extent of Cruise's injuries is still not yet known, but here’s hoping he has a speedy recovery.
