An Italian actor was declared clinically dead on Thursday after accidentally strangling himself during a play in Pisa.

According to reports, Raphael Schumacher had been in a coma since Saturday, when a hanging scene went tragically wrong in the experimental production Mirages.

The 27-year-old was taken to a local hospital after a medical student watching the show noticed the actor was trembling during the scene. The student stepped in and removed his mask from his face and loosened the noose around his neck.

The gun wielder told police that he had been drinking and accidentally dropped the handgun — which struck the woman in the upper torso after it went off.

The 40-year-old woman was rushed to Harborview Medical Center in critical condition, but later upgraded to stable.

David Leibman of the Renton Police Department told reporters:

"We have witnesses that say he came into the theater and appeared intoxicated. He went in and took a seat in theater No. 9 and was fumbling with a pistol when it went off and struck someone sitting in front of him."

The shooter has not yet been identified, but he is currently in custody and could face a number of charges.
