'G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation' crew member killed in tragic accident
Fatality occurred on NASA-owned property
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A crew member working on the film "G.I. Joe 2: Retalition" has been killed on the set in New Orleans in what the studio is calling an unusual accident.
Paramount Pictures spokeswoman Virginia Lam said Wednesday that Mike Huber was killed Tuesday. She would not comment to The Associated Press on the circumstances surrounding his death.
New Orleans Police Department spokeswoman Remi Braden says the accident occurred on property owned by NASA, so the federal government is heading the investigation. A spokesman for NASA did not immediately return a telephone call for comment.
Lam says the studio is fully cooperating with the investigation.
