On July 23, 1982, Vic Morrow and two child actors, Renee Shinn
Chen and Myca Dinh Le, are killed in an accident involving a
helicopter during filming on the
California set of Twilight Zone:
The Movie
. Morrow, age 53, and the children, ages six and seven,
were shooting a
Vietnam War battle scene in which they were
supposed to be running from a pursuing helicopter. Special-
effects explosions on the set caused the pilot of the low-flying
craft to lose control and crash into the three victims. The accident
took place on the film’s last scheduled day of shooting.

Twilight Zone co-director John Landis (Blues Brothers, Trading
Places, National Lampoon’s Animal House
) and four other men
working on the film, including the special-effects coordinator and
the helicopter pilot, were charged with involuntary manslaughter. According to a 1987 New York Times report, it was the first time
a film director faced criminal charges for events that occurred
while making a movie.

THE WORST ACCIDENT IN MOVIE HISTORY


On this day in 1982, Vic Morrow and two child actors, (below) Renee Shinn
Chen and Myca Dinh Le, are killed in an accident involving a helicopter
during filming on the
California set of Twilight Zone: The Movie. Morrow,
age 53, and the children, ages six and seven, were shooting a
Vietnam War
battle scene in which they were supposed to be running from a pursuing
helicopter. Special-effects explosions on the set caused the pilot of the low-
flying craft to lose control and crash into the three victims. The accident
took place on the film’s last scheduled day of shooting.

Twilight Zone co-director John Landis (Blues Brothers, Trading Places,
National Lampoon’s Animal House
) and four other men working on the
film, including the special-effects coordinator and the helicopter pilot,
were charged with involuntary manslaughter. Following an emotional
10-month trial, a jury acquitted all five defendants in 1987.
