    (CNN)An Italian actor is in a coma after he was strangled when the hanging scene he was performing went wrong, according to Italian police.

    Raphael Schumacher, 27, was performing in an experimental production when a member of the audience noticed that the rope around his neck was so tight it was actually killing him.

    Schumacher was wearing a covering on his head, but the spectator -- a female medical graduate -- saw him trembling and realized something was wrong. She ran to him, loosened the noose, and with the help of another spectator, lowered him to the ground.

    He was taken to hospital where he is now fighting for his life.

    Police have launched an investigation into the incident and say that investigators are verifying if proper safety procedures were in place.

    I'm no detective but I'd have to say the evidence points to no, safety procedures were not in place.

    WoopsieDaisies. He'll die. The sudden forced blood rush to his head is probably slowly obliterating his brain meats.

    remember the wrestler who dove from the rafters and his bungy cord wasn't clipped on, even though he had an aide with him?..
    this is why you always handle your own stunt gear..
    assuming someone else did their job or did what they were supposed to do has gotten many poor trusting slobs an early demise.

    Did they have to stop the play? If they did, did they give the audience a refund?

    "experimental production"
    :eek:
    I guess they mark this experiment as a failure then?

    A 27 year old actor in an experimental production sounds like just a notch above being a meth addled rent boy.
