Man shares propeller pistol procedure during Halloween filming

Following Alec Baldwin’s accidental misfires of a propeller pistol that killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, a man shared a propeller pistol procedure used during the 2018 filming Halloween to protect crew members. Take a look below:

Baldwin, 68, was holding the gun (a propeller pistol) when he accidentally discharged it. Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, 42, was killed and filmmaker Joel Souza, 48, was injured.

Hutchins was pronounced dead after being airlifted from the site and taken to the University of New Mexico hospital and Souza, was released from the hospital earlier today (October 22).

A man has now shared behind-the-scenes footage from 2018 Halloween, which shows a clear barrier between the camera and the shotgun to protect the camera operator from blank shots.

The video was posted today (October 22) by user @ Wazzu0199 and received a lot of attention from Twitter users.

He captioned the post: “This is a behind-the-scenes clip from the Halloween (2018).

“Notice that there is some kind of barrier between the camera operator and the prop gun.

“I just have a hard time understanding how this kind of accident still happens in 2021.

“#AlecBaldwin #HalynaHutchins.”

However, one user rightly pointed out, “Maybe that didn’t happen during the filming.

“We don’t have all the facts yet, so please stop assuming you know exactly what happened.”

Another said: “Sometimes safety precautions still fail and you have to prepare for it and face the possible consequences.”

A third added: “Stop trying to blame someone. It’s a horrible accident.”

An official with the Santa Fe Sheriff’s Department explained that an investigation was open and active, but added: “Mr. Baldwin has been questioned by investigators and released.

“No arrests or charges have been laid.”
