Tom Cruise may have suffered an injury while performing a stunt on the London set of "Mission: Impossible 6".

Tom is now on set in London and he was wearing a safety harness during the time of the accident. Cruise seems to make the impressive leap but appears to not land properly, instead slamming into the side of the building. Tom Cruise reportedly injured his leg when jumping from one building to the other.

He then was pulled back to the scaffolding as a crew member went to assist him, removing the safety rope and briefly holding Cruise's hand as he steadied himself and limped away.

In the footage, the impact looks serious and, once delivered by wire to the roof, Cruise limps away, unsteady on his feet.
