A stuntwoman who worked on teen sitcom Icarly is suing bosses of the show after a high-wire feat went wrong.

Katina Waters claims her career was ruined when the operator controlling her wire machine dropped her without warning and she crashed to the floor.

Waters, 40, claims the incident caused severe injuries to her leg, including fractured bones and torn ligaments, according to Tmz.com.

She is suing the show's production company, Schneider's Bakery, along with the Nickelodeon and MTV television networks for pain, suffering and loss of earnings.

iCarly starred Miranda Cosgrove and ran from 2007 to 2012.
