Alec Baldwin Sued By ‘Rust’ Crew Members For ‘Blast Injuries’

Tiffany Brockworth |

Three “Rust” crew members have sued Alec Baldwin, claiming they have suffered anxiety and symptoms of PTSD as a result of the shooting death of the film’s cinematographer. Other producers of the movie were also sued.

Ross Addiego, Doran Curtin, and Reese Price say they were in close proximity to Baldwin when the gun was fired, and suffered “blast injuries” from sound of the shot. They were also close enough to witness the fatal shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.

“She watched in shock as Hutchins grabbed at her abdomen,” the lawsuit states. “Plaintiff Curtin put her hands on Hutchins’ stomach, trying to find the source of Hutchins’ pain and figure out what was going on. As the chaos continued, Plaintiff Curtin was ushered out of the church. Once outside, she collapsed from the effects of the blast and the shock of the shooting.”

The lawsuit blames Baldwin for not paying attention during weapons training. The lawsuit states that it was his responsibility to ensure that the gun was not loaded with a live bullet and his fault for discharging the round.
