'No 1 was hurt' after component of Oscars set collapsed during rehearsal, academy says

Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel and show crew members are safe soon after component of the set collapsed for the duration of the rehearsals for the 2017 Academy Awards.

Kimmel was rehearsing for a skit that consists of people today from a true Hollywood tour bus who are brought on stage.

In the course of the rehearsal portion of the mock skyscrapers collapsed Kimmel had walked off-stage at the time of the incident.

"Through a rehearsal of tonight's 89th Oscars, component of the set was knocked over," according to an official statement from the Academy of Motion Image Arts and Sciences. "No 1 was onstage at the time and fortunately, no one particular was hurt. The set was quickly repaired and will not influence tonight's show."

The statement added, "We're searching forward to celebrating our nominees on this exciting night."

Kimmel posted a photo just an hour ago with his daughter.
