Baldwin
Reveals
He
Is
‘Cooperating
With
Police’
After
Deadly
Prop
Gun
Incident,
Says
My
Heart
Is
Broken

Brandon
Lee
back
in
1993
died
while
filming

The
Crow

similarly
due
to
an
onset
incident.
Lee,
who
was
the
son
of
martial-arts
icon
Bruce
Lee,
died
at
the
age
of
28
due
to
a
fragment
of
a
bullet
lodged
inside
the
gun
being
discharged
when
a
blank
was
fired.

According
to
DailyMail,
it
struck
his
abdomen
with
the
same
force
as
a
bullet
would
have.
For
a
scene,
the
prop
gun

which
was
a
real
Smith
&
Wesson
revolver

had
been
loaded
with
improperly
crafted
dummy
rounds,
cartridges
that
have
the
powder
charges
removed
so
that
in
close-ups
the
revolver
appears
loaded
with
normal
ammunition.
However,
the
crew
failed
to
remove
the
primer
from
the
cartridges
and
at
some
point,
prior
to
the
fatal
incident,
one
of
the
rounds
was
fired.
After
six
hours
of
unsuccessful
emergency
surgery,
Lee
succumbed
to
his
injuries.

on

Period.”
