Crew members getting injured on the set of big budgeted films isn’t anything new. There’s a lot of dangerous equipment being swung around, which is why insurance costs are so high. This morning, though, a crew member did more than just get injured, he drowned.
Johnny Depp and Disney’s next venture together, The Lone Ranger, an updated version of the 50’s TV show, resulted in the death of a diver who was working in the set’s large swimming tank. He was found in the water, not breathing.
