A camera operator on "NCIS:Los Angeles"  has been hospitalized after sustaining an injury during filming of the CBS television show.

The accident occurred during a stunt scene being filmed at Burbank Airport, said a person close the production, which stars Chris O'Donnell and LL Cool J. The victim, who has not been identified, remains hospitalized, said the source, who was not authorized to discuss the incident.

A spokeswoman for CBS declined to comment. The incident, first reported by Deadline, is the latest among several film and TV set accidents that have occurred in L.A. area in recent months.

Earlier this month, a helicopter pilot, cameraman and crew member were killed in a helicopter crash in Acton during the filming of a reality series for Discovery Channel, the worst film-set accident in California in three decades. The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating.

Last month, a stuntman working on ABC's program "Castle" sustained serious head injuries.

And in September, a diver drowned in a water tank in Acton while preparing a scene for the Walt Disney Studios movie "The Lone Ranger" starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer. Cal-OSHA is still investigating the incident.
