The chief electrician on the film Rust is suing Alec Baldwin and members of the crew and production team, claiming he is suffering “severe emotional distress” following the death of Halyna Hutchins.

Serge Svetnoy was inside the church set when Hutchins was shot by Baldwin, standing just feet from the actor. He described being hit with bullet fragments before cradling the dying cinematographer, whom he had known for several years, for more than 20 minutes before an ambulance arrived.

What a terrible tragedy and injustice when a person loses her life on a film set while making art,” Mr Svetnoy said.

It is the first lawsuit filed over the incident on October 21st which resulted in the death of 42-year-old Hutchins.
