Channing Tatum burns crotch on film set?

13 January 2010 [16:00] - TODAY.AZ
Channing Tatum has apparently been rushed to hospital after a scalding accident on the set of his latest movie.
The GI Joe star is said to have scorched his penis when his technique to keep warm on the set of The Eagle of the Ninth took a turn for the worse.

The actor had just finished a scene in the freezing cold water of the Scottish Highlands when a crew member, charged with pouring hot water over Tatum's wetsuit, accidentally tipped the boiling water inside the garment.

"It was the most painful thing I have ever experienced in my life," he told Details. "I've been to the hospital, gotten stitches, had broken fingers and toes. But this was a suffocating kind of pain."

On the way to the hospital, Tatum is thought to have told the driver: "You might have to knock me out, because I don't know if I can take the pain. Just grab something and hit me on the back of my head."

It has been reported that morphine eventually alleviated the injury, along with salves and bandages.

"I'm good... now. One hundred per cent recovered," Tatum added.
