DECRYPTION – The actor accidentally killed the cinematographer and injured the director of Rust. A live bullet was placed in the revolver instead of a blank bullet.
At New York
The drama occurred at 1:50 p.m. New Mexico time at a famous filming location near Santa Fe, the Bonanza Creek Ranch. In this western setting, Alec Baldwin, main actor and producer of the film Rust, wields a revolver and shoots “facing the camera”. The balls should have been blank. But the one that comes out of the barrel is a real ammunition, which strikes the chief operator, Halyna Hutchins, before lodging in the collarbone of the director, Joel Souza.
The two victims are immediately evacuated. Halyna Hutchins, 42, expires in the helicopter that takes her to an Albuquerque hospital. Joel Souza, 48, treated in Santa Fe, will survive. Unaware of their fate, Alec Baldwin remains prostrate. “In all my life, I had never been handed a loaded gun with live ammunition!”, he repeats, in shock.
