Finally further official details have come out about the accident on the set of the Hayden Christensen-led sci-fi thriller “Jumper”.

Set dresser David Ritchie was pronounced dead on the scene after a large piece of frozen sand and gravel fell from the top of a wall at an outdoor set that he and three crew members were dismantling in frigid winter temperatures reports the trades.

Another crew member was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries and kept overnight for observation.

Filming in Canada had already wrapped the previous Friday on the project, the rest of the crew is currently at work in Tokyo.
