Few serious injuries in 'Wipeout'

Has anyone been seriously injured or killed while competing on ABC's Wipeout?

No one has been killed, thankfully. Injuries? You bet. Scrapes, cuts, bruises are common. The most serious, according to the producers, have been an occasional dislocated shoulder. There also has been at least one report of a concussion.

Executive producer Matt Kunitz said in an interview with the Futon Critic website that injuries are kept to a minimum by the extreme amount of padding — 6 to 24 inches of it on the runways, the bars, everything.

Beyond that, the show has a safety coordinator, four emergency medical technicians and an ambulance, just in case.

"When we're designing the stunts," Kunitz said in the interview, "we're thinking, 'How do we make them safe?' It's a very fine line because you want a great wipeout but you don't want to hurt anybody."
