Mister Rogers movie crew member dies after on-set fall

Police, medics and firefighters were on the scene at the filming of the Mr. Rogers movie after a male crew member fell two stories after possibly having a heart attack, according to the Mount Lebanon Police on Thursday night.

"Basically, he appears to have suffered from a medical emergency while on the balcony", Lebanon Chief of Police Aaron Lauth told People magazine.

Emswiller, who won an Emmy in 2015 for outstanding sound mixing for a limited series or movie for his work on Queen Latifah's "Bessie", has nearly 80 credits to his name.

He was taken to UPMC Mercy hospital near Mt. Lebanon, Pa., in serious condition, but his status worsened after arriving.

Filming was suspended on Thursday as police investigated the circumstances of the fall. He also worked on the upcoming Cate Blanchett film "Where'd You Go, Bernadette".

A crew member who won an Emmy Award died on the set of Tom Hanks' forthcoming movie about Mr. Rogers, according to reports on October 12.

Per a Friday report from the Associated Press, James Emswiller, a 61-year-old member of the sound production team, fell over a brick wall on a two-story balcony at an apartment building during a break in filming at approximately 7:30 p.m. ET. Hanks is playing Rogers in the film.

It is based on the real-life friendship between Rogers and Tom Junod, a cynical journalist who was sent to interview the TV star only to find the encounter transformed his outlook on life.

Hanks was reportedly present when Emswiller fell, and left the site sometime after.

Rogers, who was the star of the much-loved long-running children's series Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, died in 2003 at the age of 74. The show is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year with Morgan Neville's documentary "Won't You Be My Neighbor' premiering at the Sundance film festival".
