The Broadway musical "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" will resume after producers agreed to implement new safety precautions. A stunt double playing Spider-Man fell 30 feet into a stage pit on Monday night. It was the fourth accident involving the musical.

Wednesday night's performance was canceled so the cast and crew could rehearse the new safety measures.

The new precautions include adding a second person to check harnesses used by performers during the high-flying stunts.

New York's Department of Labor said it's satisfied that the producers of the $65 million musical have made the necessary adjustments.
