No one, not his own Alec Baldwin, he imagined the tragedy that I would be about to experience.
Unfortunately, bad luck led the actor to unintentionally end the life of Halyna Hutchins, the cinematographer of his new film, ‘Rust’, al shoot a prop gun which I did not know was loaded with a real bullet.
And more details of this unfortunate event continue to come to light, because now they filtered the call to 911 that was done on set to warn of the mishap.
This was done by the script supervisor for the film that was being shot in New Mexico. Shocked by what happened, the woman asks for immediate help after reporting that two people were injured after being shot.
“We have two people who were accidentally shot on a movie set with a prop gun. We need help immediately”, He warned.
The person who attends her asks her to remain calm and asks her if she knows what object was fired from the gun, whether a real bullet or not, and she is not sure what to answer.
“We don’t have… I can’t tell you that. We have two gunshot wounds in a movie. I am the script supervisor. I was sitting in the rehearsal (when the accident happened) and I ran out of the building, ”she replied.
Finally, the authorities sent an emergency helicopter to transfer Hutchins, 42, but died shortly after.
The investigation is currently focused on knowing what type of projectile was used and how the prop weapon was fired with fatal consequences for two of the main persons responsible for the filming, since the director Joel Souza was also injured.
Given the fact, Baldwin has already issued his first statements through his social networks highlighting that he is collaborating with the relevant investigations to clarify the “tragedy” and that he has remained in contact with the director’s family to whom he expressed his condolences .
“There are no words to convey my shock and sadness over the tragic accident that the life of Halyna Hutchins has been claimed (…) I am fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred. I am in contact with her husband, offering my support to him and his family, ”she posted on Twitter.
