Kristin Chenoweth was rushed to the hospital Wednesday after a piece of lighting equipment fell and struck her in the head. The actress, 43, was working on CBS's Emmy-winning drama The Good Wife when she was injured.
Although the actress' condition isn't known, TMZ reports that paramedics were called to the Brooklyn set at 5:07 p.m. to treat a woman hit by scaffolding. According to TMZ's source, a wind gust caused the collapse.
"That area is a vortex for wind ... and a big gust of wind blew the lighting off the scaffolding," a witness said, adding that Chenoweth was hit "square in the head" and appeared to be "knocked out cold."
Paramedics attended to Chenoweth on set by fitting her in a neck brace and placing her on a stretcher. The Tony-winning Broadway diva was transported via an FDNY ambulance and was admitted to a nearby hospital.
A rep for the Fire Dept. of New York told TMZ that Kristin (who was not identified by name) was treated for "minor injuries" connected to the accident.
This isn't the first time Chenoweth was injured in a work-related accident. She hurt her neck during a performance of Wicked in 2003; fell off an elevated stage during a rehearsal for The Apple Tree in 2006; and just last year tumbled down the stairs on the set of Glee.
