48-year-old Michael Andrew Bridger, who was working as a crew member on the set of Disney’s The Lone Ranger,passed away last week.
Bridger was dressed in scuba gear and cleaning out a pool that was to be used on the film set in Acton, CA, northeast of Los Angeles. It appears he suffered a heart attack while working, but an autopsy will reveal the official cause of death.
Walt Disney Studios says its thoughts are with Bridger’s friends and family, and they are making every effort to identify the cause of death. We’ll keep you updated when we know more.
