Sad to report ...http://variety.com/2...114468/#respond

My thoughts tonight are with the victim and their family/friends/co-workers of this tragedy. Very few people know the truth of this event. I hope it is revealed to all so that this can never happen again. No shot is worth a life.

Thank you for sharing this terrible news Paul.  Having lost 3 camera people to accidents in my career, this really hits home.  We as a camera team member (or production team, for that matter)  have the responsibility of looking out for one another.  We have the responsibility to speak up when things don't seem right and are plainly unsafe.  Don't assume that those in charge are completely capable of safety when they are under pressure to deliver.  Only we can be the voice of reason regarding what's safe and what's not safe when it comes down to the moment.  You can't be silent regarding this.  Safety is ALL of our business.
