Snowboarder Hurt During Letterman Stunt
Feb. 06, 2004
NEW YORK (AP) _ A snowboarder performing a stunt for David Letterman's late-night TV show veered off a ramp on a Manhattan street and fell 25 feet to the ground Thursday, witnesses said.
The 30-year-old woman was hospitalized in stable condition, a fire department spokesman said.
Witnesses said the woman, whose name was not immediately released, made two successful jumps on the U-shaped ramp, set up outside the Ed Sullivan Theater, and then fell off the ramp after landing a third time.
``She came down at an angle and she just went off the side of the ramp and landed on her back,'' said Dave Riddle, a tour bus driver from Orlando, Fla.
A spokeswoman from CBS' ``Late Show with David Letterman'' had no immediate comment.
