perghh! Twilight Zone Accident! (kipas helikopter cantas badan pelakon)

Date: July 23, 1982
Fatalities: 3 People

Twilight Zone: The Movie is a 1983 film produced by Steven Spielberg and John Landis as a theatrical version of the 1960s TV series created by Rod Serling. The 1983 film remade three classic episodes of the original series and included one original story. John Landis directed the prologue and the first segment, Steven Spielberg directed the second, Joe Dante the third, and George Miller directed the final segment. On July 23, 1982, an accident occurred while director John Landis filmed the Time Out scene of the movie, with actor Vic Morrow and child performers Myca Dinh Le (age 7) and Renee Shin-Yi Chen (age 6). During the scene, a helicopter crashed into the actors.

The helicopter lost control after a series of fireballs were released for pyrotechnic effects. One of the explosions caused the low-flying craft to spin out of control and land right on top of Morrow and the two children. Morrow and Myca were decapitated by the helicopter’s top rotor blades and Renee was impaled by one of the skids. All three of the actors were killed instantly. It was a big news story and evidence emerged that Myca and Renee were being paid under the table to get around California’s child-labor laws. The accident led to civil and criminal action against the filmmakers and John Landis.

In the proceedings, nobody was convicted or held criminally culpable for the accident. In the aftermath of the event, regulations were changed involving children working on movie sets and during special effect-heavy scenes. Unlike most deadly accidents that take place on film sets, the actual footage of the Twilight Zone crash has been released to the public. The video was widely used in the criminal trial. The clip shows a lawyer describing the sad day and then it shows the actual crash. The tragedy remains one of the worst accidents in the history of Hollywood.
