Just another reminder that safety has to come first and that what we do carries risk to our health and lives.

Its always sad to see whenever a technician dies while working or under any other circumstances. What i find to be sadder is if you look at the way yahoo! reported it yesterday. They made it out like it was a relief that none of the talent was hurt or even there. Really like those of us that actually make a film aren't worth anything as comparted to the 'talent.'

Indeed a tragedy, but Jon, How could you possibly read "relief" into the way this was reported. I read all the stories by Yahoo, AP, and Rueters, and I'm not seeing it the same as you. Not trying to start something. Prayers to the family of Comway Wickliffe.
