A stunt performer at Universal Studios Hollywood was hospitalized after an accident at the WaterWorld: A Live Sea War Spectacular show Monday.

"We can confirm a performer with one of our long-standing show vendors was transported to the hospital following a stunt during an afternoon performance and our thoughts are with him as he receives care," a spokesperson for Universal Studios Hollywood told FOX Business.

"Details surrounding the event are under review. As always, safety is our top priority in our day-to-day operations," the spokesperson added.

The show was canceled and guests were escorted out. 

WaterWorld is Universal Studios Hollywood's No. 1 rated show, according to the amusement park's website. The attraction features "jumping jet-skiers, perilous plunges, firefights, massive explosions, and an in-your-face plane crash" performed by stuntmen.
