Swayze breaks a leg during film shoot

DAVIS, Calif., May 10 -- Patrick Swayze's film publicist says the actor is doing 'just fine' after breaking his right leg while shooting a scene for an upcoming movie.

The spokeswoman said Swayze was injured after he fell from a horse and hit a tree Friday evening on location in the Fresno, Calif., area. He was air-lifted to a hospital in Davis, Calif., where his leg was set in a cast. Filming of the independent production, 'Letters from a Killer,' will continue, but production may slow down for a few weeks while Swayze recuperates. The actor remained hospitalized Saturday night at the University of California's medical center in Davis, about 12 miles northwest of Sacramento. ---
