Jackie Chan injured by stuntman wearing wrong shoes

HONG KONG (AP) _ A stuntman wearing the wrong shoes kicked Jackie Chan in the chest, sending the action star to the hospital for a checkup earlier this month.

``These things just happen,'' Chan said Tuesday on his Web site. ``I always put safety first when filming, but still, sometimes things just go wrong. It was just an ordinary accident. The stuntman working with me had on the wrong shoes and I got hurt.''

The 51-year-old actor was injured while shooting the action-comedy ``Rob-B-Hood'' in Hong Kong.

The injury was painful but doctors said Chan was in ``good shape.'' He continued to feel pain for several days after the March 23 accident, but he is improving, according to the Web site.

Chan's films include the ``Rush Hour'' movies, ``The Medallion'' and ``Shanghai Knights.''
