SCOTT McLean, top Australian stuntman and the third child of the high profile Susan River Adventure Resort family, is in a Bangkok hospital in a coma.

Mr McLean was injured in a high-speed car crash on the set of The Hangover Part II, being filmed in the Thai capital.

The veteran stuntman, was put into an induced coma after the crash on December 17.

Yesterday his family didn't want to talk about Mr McLean's medical condition, except to express concern over how he was recovering.

“But he is in the best Thai hospital and they are being wonderful to him. He definitely can't come home because he can't fly.”

Mr McLean's stunt credits include The Matrix and Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones.

The Warner Bros multi-million movie stars Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis, Justin Bartha and Ken Jeong.

Liam Neeson replaced Australia's US citizen Mel Gibson after cast and crew refused to work with him on the project.

President Bill Clinton and Mike Tyson have cameo roles.

Warner Bros. confirmed the accident and issued this statement:

“There was an accident involving a truck and a car on the second unit set of “The Hangover Part II” near Bangkok, Thailand, at approximately 3am on Friday, December 17, 2010, Bangkok time.

“A stuntman was injured during the filming of this sequence. The truck and car were both driven by stunt drivers. An ambulance immediately took the injured stuntman to the local hospital, and he has since been transported to a hospital in Bangkok where advanced care is being provided. We are awaiting further details concerning his condition.”

The Hangover sequel is set for release on May 26. It has a big act to follow. The original Hangover grossed $277 million in the US.

Mr McLean's younger brother Guy, known as the Horseman from Susan River, is touring in the US.
