There is another tragedy related to Alec Baldwin's "Rust" movie set and it involves a worker on the film. It's only been a few weeks since the tragic death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, but there's already another tragedy on the movie set. Hutchins was shot and killed while director Joel Souza was injured when a gun being held by actor Alec Baldwin fired after he had been told it was a prop. The incident caused the entire film industry to relook gun safety on set and the movie's production at Bonanza Creek Rach was stopped indefinitely.

While the Hollywood actors and film crew are long gone from the "Rust" set, there is still a local crew there to break down the movie set. One of those workers was lamp operator and pipe rigger Jason Miller, who according to TMZ was hired to help with the breakdown of the movie set. While working in the New Mexican desert, Miller was bitten by a brown recluse spider. The brown recluse is a poisonous spider and can be deadly to those who are bitten.

Miller went to the hospital a few days later after his condition began to worsen, and according to a GoFundMe has undergone multiple surgeries as doctors try to stop the infection and save his arm from amputation. They are now asking for donations for Jason and his family to help him with the medical cost and future expenses from the life-changing event. You can donate to help Jason Miller during this difficult time on the GoFundMe website.
