‘Titans’ Crew Member Killed After Failed Stunt
A crew member on the set of the show ‘Titans’ unfortunately died after a stunt went terribly wrong.
Production spoke with TMZ and shared that the crew member, who’s a special effects coordinator, died Thursday in Toronto where they had been filming. The accident happened during a test facility where producers and actors work on perfecting the stunts.
Apparently, the crew member was working on stunt that involved a car that was supposed to flip on its side. They managed to do exactly that however, a piece of metal from some sort of welded contraption that was attached to the car flew off. That object struck the special effects coordinator who was just standing nearby and hit him in the head. EMT’s took him to the hospital, but cops said he died en route.
Executive Producers from “Titans” released a statement through TMZ saying,
“We are heartbroken and devastated by the passing of our treasured colleague, special effects coordinator Warren Appleby, after an accident which occurred at a special effects facility during the preparation and testing for an upcoming shoot. Warren is beloved by all who worked with him during an impressive 25-year career in television and motion pictures. The executive producers, along with everyone, in the TITANS family, Warner Bros. Television Group and DC UNIVERSE, wish to express our deepest condolences, and heartfelt love and support, to Warren’s family and friends at this most difficult time.”
Production will be shut down for 2 days and it was said that the Ministry of Labour is now investigating.
