5 Deadly On-Set Tragedies, From ‘The Crow’ to ‘Rust’ (Photos)

·1-min read

On Oct. 23, 42-year-old cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was accidentally shot and killed with a prop gun on the set of indie film “Rust.” Unaware that the gun contained live ammunition, producer-star Alec Baldwin fired the gun, striking both Hutchins and director Joel Souza.

Hutchins’ death is the latest in a long line of on-set tragedies. Between 1990 and 2016, approximately 43 people had died on U.S. sets and more than 150 sustained life-changing injuries, the Associated Press reported. These numbers do not include the filming accidents that are undocumented in investigation records or the Occupation of Safety and Health Administration’s database.
