Stagehand Killed On Set Of Samuel L. Jackson's New Movie, "The Jumper"
Set dresser David Ritchie, 56, suffered serious head and shoulder injuries and died instantly. A second man was taken to the hospital and a third managed to escape unharmed.
Police officer Joanne Verbeek confirmed that sand and earth frozen to a wall for exterior design came unstuck as the set was being torn down and crushed Ritchie. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Verbeek said, "It was just an unfortunate, fluke accident."
Filming in Toronto was completed on January 15. Director Doug Liman and his cast, which includes actor Hayden Christensen, have since moved on to Tokyo to shoot more scenes.
