Tom Cruise hurt during movie stunt

Actor Tom Cruise injured himself in London when a high-octane stunt went wrong and saw him crashing into the side of a building while filming "Mission: Impossible 6."

Video footage shows the star, who performs his own stunts,  taking a huge leap off some rigging onto a rooftop while attached to a harness.

However, the 55-year-old missed the landing and slammed into a building.

Cruise pulled himself up onto the rooftop and was limping and holding his knee.

He had to be pulled back to the scaffolding, where other members of the team helped.

Cruise plays Ethan Hunt in the hit series.  The latest film also stars Henry Cavill, Simon Pegg, Jeremy Renner and Vanessa Kirby.

The accident came shortly after the CEO of Skydance Media revealed that Cruise would be performing the "most impressive and unbelievable" stunt of his career.
