NBC says Conan O'Brien hit his head during a stunt for the "Tonight Show" and the production was halted.
The accident occurred Friday. O'Brien was being examined at a hospital, according to a person close to the production. The person, who lacked authorization to discuss details of the matter, spoke on condition of anonymity.
Through NBC, O'Brien issued a statement to demonstrate that he was able to joke about the incident. O'Brien said that he recalled "enjoying the play with Mrs. Lincoln," and the next thing he was aware of was being served cookies and juice.
