A Japanese actor was accidentally killed by a prop samurai sword during a rehearsal for a play.

According to CNN, 33-year-old Daigo Kashino was rushed to the hospital when he was stabbed in the stomach and later died from his injuries.

The other actors allegedly heard Kashino groan and saw him hunched over although no one saw what exactly happened.

Police are investigating whether Kashino’s death was an accident.

At the beginning of February, Italian actor Raphael Schumacher was declared clinically dead after accidentally strangling himself during the performance of a play in Pisa.

The 27-year-old performer had been in a coma for five days after a hanging scene in the experimental production “Mirages” at the Teatro Lux went horribly wrong.
