The incident happened last year in the month of October when Alec Baldwin (revolver actor and producer) was simply rehearsing at the time of filming in New Mexico fired a live round that killed one and injured other.
In an earlier statement, Rust movie productions stated that they were not aware of the kind of lapses that had to go through at the time of filming.
Stefan Friedman, spokesperson for Rust Movie Productions said, “While we appreciate OSHA’s time and effort in its investigation, we disagree with its findings and plan to appeal,” he said on Wednesday.
The probe in the case started since then. And in a span of 6 months, it was revealed that the production company didn’t bother to launch investigation against the complaints of crew members regarding firearm safety.
At this time, Santa Fe County District Attorney and Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office are investigating into the above fatality.
In the meanwhile, fatality has denied the responsibility for the Hutchins demise. He stated that nobody allowed to take live rounds onto the set.
