Construction Worker Dies In Fall At Pinewood Atlanta Studios


A construction worker has been killed at Pinewood Atlanta Studios in Fayetteville, GA outside Atlanta. The incident occurred around 11 AM local time Tuesday, according to Atlanta station WSB-TV 2.

Capt. Mike Singleton of the Fayette County Fire Department said the worker was killed in a “fall from height.” Deadline just learned that the 41 year-old male worker was helping to build a new warehouse for Pinewood, fell out of a lift and wasn’t wearing a harness.

A spokesman for the Sheriff’s Department said they are “waiting for OSHA to get on the scene.”

The studio features 18 sound stages on 700 acres just south of Atlanta and has been home to several of Disney’s Marvel movies including right now Avengers: Infinity War and Black Panther. According to sources the worker was not involved in either of those productions.
