Incredible incident on film set: Alec Baldwin kills the director of photography with a gun (which had to be loaded with blanks)

In the coming months we will certainly investigate more thoroughly what happened on the set of the film “Rust”, where the well-known actor Alec Baldwin accidentally shot (at least for the moment) the director of the photography, killing her.

I vaguely remember other incidents of the kind, but more than anything else they were accidents due to stuntmen who had to do stunts or dangerous scenes …

I don’t remember pistol accidents. Now, while admitting the actor’s good faith, it’s amazing to think how a gun was loaded with live bullets when it only needed to be loaded with blanks.

Baldwin is among the producers of the film while behind the camera of the independent film “Rust” is the director Joel Souza, 48, who was also injured and is now hospitalized at Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center in Santa Fe. However, there was nothing to do for director of photography Halyna Hutchins, who was shot and transported in serious condition by air ambulance to the University of New Mexico hospital in Albuquerque, where she died shortly after the arrival of she.

  1. I’m sure it was an accident, but begs the question, why was the gun aimed at her. I was always taught never to point a gun at someone whether loaded or not.

      1. This is probably too simplistic but when we were kids and had our wood guns, we were taught that we were not to point them at people, we could play cops and robbers BUT we had to point the gun several inches to the left or right of our target, just in case. Just a thought.
