A member of the production crew for 2012’s G.I. Joe: Retaliation died yesterday on the film’s New Orleans set. TMZ initially reported that Mike Huber was tearing down the set when the high-powered scissor lift he was operating tipped over, leading to fatal injuries. Although Paramount did not confirm the circumstances, a spokesperson for the studio sent EW the following statement: “Our thoughts and deepest condolences are with the Huber family at this time. The safety of our cast and crew is our top priority and the studio is fully cooperating with all investigating agencies as they examine the circumstances surrounding this unusual accident.”
