Alec Baldwin Rust shooting: Management knew ‘firearm safety procedures not being followed’, report finds | US News
A report into Alec Baldwin’s fatal shooting of Halyna Hutchins on the set of Rust has found management “knew that firearm safety procedures were not being followed”.
New Mexico workplace safety regulators have issued the maximum possible fine against the film production company for firearms safety failures.
They said that the firm “demonstrated plain indifference to employee safety”, adding Rust Movie Productions must pay a penalty of $139,793.
Cinematographer Hutchins died after a prop gun held by Baldwin, 64, was fired during rehearsals last October. The actor was one of the film’s producers, as well as its star.
