Crew member dies after fall on set of Mister Rogers movie

Emswiller, who the county medical examiner said was 61, may have been stricken with a heart attack prior to the fall, according to local reports.

The unidentified 65-year-old crew member was rushed to a Pittsburgh-area hospital, where his condition worsened, Mt. Lebanon police told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

An award-winning sound mixer died after falling from a balcony on the set of a new movie starring Tom Hanks as the children's television presenter Mr Rogers.

Police and paramedics were called around 7:30 p.m. after other crew members reportedly heard Emswiller hit the ground.

Police say the crew was on a break and Emswiller was taking a break alone on the deck.

"There were a bunch of fire trucks, like maybe two of three ambulances, it was a large commotion, everyone was staring", said Sarah Pfabe. "We saw one ambulance leave; they had the lights on but not the siren".

Hanks was reportedly on set earlier in the day, but it's unknown at the time whether or not the actor was around when the tragic accident occurred.

Filming was halted on the night of Emswiller's death, but it's unclear when production will resume.

In an interview a year ago with the New York Times, she admitted that she deletes the apps from her phone at least once a week. However late last week the Coach ambassador had to be re-admitted for the same problem, but this time she reacted much worse.


Sony Pictures/Tri-Star Pictures told USA Today: "This is a devastating tragedy and the studio is investigating the matter".

You Are My Friend is being directed by Marielle Heller and stars Hanks as Fred Rogers, the late host of Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood. "Our thoughts and prayers are with Jim's loved ones, friends, and colleagues". He picked up an Emmy for Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Limited Series or Movie in 2015 for the HBO biopic "Bessie".

The Hanks film is set to be released in October 2019 by TriStar Pictures.
