Wolverine star Hugh Jackman has been treated for a serious eye injury after a stunt went horribly wrong on the set of Oprah‘s television special in Australia, RadarOnline.com has learned.
Jackman zoomed toward the stage on a zip line at the Sydney Opera House but failed to slow down as he neared the landing spot.
He came to an abrupt halt when his leg struck a studio light, forcing a piece of debris into his eye.

With his two children watching in the audience and visibly upset, Jackman had blood from a cut above his right eye.
Winfrey rushed to Jackman’s aid before he left the stage to be treated by paramedics.
“I’ve never been hugged by a paramedic,’’ a shaken Jackman laughed before placing an icepack on his eye.
“That was so much fun until the end.”
Filming was suspended.
