MOVIES Accidents

A lot goes into making good media. Producing a film or TV show takes blood, sweat, and tears. However, sometimes the process can claim an innocent life

Tragically, this was the case on the set of Alec Baldwin's new film, 'Rust.' On October 21, a woman died and a man was injured after Baldwin reportedly discharged a prop gun during filming. The woman has been identified as Halyna Hutchins, a 42-year-old cinematographer. She was flown to the hospital by helicopter but died of her injuries. Police are investigating the incident but no charges have been filed. A spokesperson for Baldwin says that it was an accident involving the misfiring of a prop gun with blanks. 

This type of incident has occurred for over 100 years. Explore this gallery to find out which movies featured cast and crew who passed away during filming.
