An actor kills a camerawoman – level 2

27-10-2021 07:00

On Thursday, American actor Alec Baldwin killed camerawoman Halyna Hutchins, and he injured director Joel Souza.

The accident happened in New Mexico during the filming of the 19th-century Western movie ’Rust’. Baldwin fired a prop gun, and then he shot two people. A helicopter took Hutchins to hospital, where she later died. Souza’s injury was not serious, and he left the hospital on the same day.

Police are investigating the incident, and they spoke to the actor shortly after it happened. Reports said that Baldwin was crying when he left the sheriff’s office. Police did not file any charges, and they said that the incident was an accident.

Difficult words: director (a person who tells actors in a movie or play what to do), prop (a thing which people use in a play or movie), charge (to officially say that somebody did something wrong or illegal).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
