Actor Tom Cruise appeared to injure himself Sunday when he slammed into the side of a building during a jumping stunt on the London set of "Mission Impossible 6."

The 55-year-old actor, who performs most of his own stunts for the popular action movie franchise, hit the building when attempting to leap a short distance from a nearby rigging, reports TMZ.

He fell short of his mark, a video posted by TMZ shows, and then climbed up onto the building's roof, limping away from its edge and then collapsing near film crew members.

Cruise then limped back to the edge of the building's roof and was pulled by members of the movie's safety team to the piling he'd leapt from, and then he limped off with the crew members.

TMZ reports the extent of Cruise's injuries are not known.

According to The Telegraph in London, Cruise has been filming the latest installation of the action series in an unknown part of London, with some on social media saying the film has been set on the Thames' northern banks.

In addition to the rooftop leaping scenes, Cruise has also been filming dangerous stunts in Paris, reports The Telegraph, including one in which he slams a motorcycle into a car before flipping through the air. He was also photographed parachuting in Oxfordshire earlier this month.
