The cast member had been doing an underwater scene at the time, but it has not been revealed whether the member was part of a stunt-crew or not and we are not yet sure whether he had drowned or if it was merely a heart attack.
Disney will not be naming any names just yet, but the studio has revealed this statement:
“We regretfully confirm that a Lone Ranger crew member has passed away after being taken to a local hospital. Our hearts and thoughts are with his family, friends, and colleagues at this time, and our full support is behind the investigation into the circumstances of this terrible event.”
We all send our condolences to the friends and families who knew the cast member
