‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ Camera Operator Injured On Set

A camera operator was hospitalized after being injured on the set of NCIS: Los Angeles Thursday.

The injury occurred during a stunt scene that was being filmed at Burbank Airport, a person close to the production told the Los Angeles Times. Production for the series was shut down after the accident, but resumed Friday.

According to Deadline, the episode that was being filmed at the time of the accident is set to serve as a backdoor pilot for an upcoming spinoff series.

A spokeswoman for CBS declined to comment on the injury, which is the latest in a string of accidents that have happened on film and TV sets in recent months in the Los Angeles area. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, three people were killed in a helicopter crash during the filming of a Discovery Channel reality show. All three men were in their mid-40s and were pronounced dead at the scene.

Last month, a stuntman for the ABC series Castle sustained severe head injuries during filming. By the end of the month, he was improving in the hospital after being taken off a ventilator. The stuntman, Kieran Gallagher, played Ed Helms’ stunt double in The Hangover II and the upcoming The Hangover III.

Last September, a crew member working as a diver on the Johnny Depp film The Lone Rangerdied after filming a water scene. The man went into cardiac arrest after being pulled out of the water and was airlifted to a nearby hospital, but EMTs were unable to restart his heart during the transport. He was pronounced dead at the hospital.
