Lone Ranger Drowning Death: Safety Violations Cause Film Set Accident
A death on the set of the upcoming film The Lone Ranger was sadly caused by workplace-safety violations.
The film's production company must shell out $61,445 in fines after it was cited for violations which led to the death of a scuba diver on the film's set last fall, according to E! Online.
The 48-year-old diver had been attempting to clean out a large water tank on September 21, 2012, when he was found dead in the water.
Apparently, his "dive buddy" was absent for 10 minutes, and so the death is being blamed on the fact that the diver was working alone and had not been given a medical exam beforehand.
The Johnny Depp film is being relased by Disney in July.
Our thoughts are with the diver's family and loved ones.
