|The late Brandon Lee.|
In 1993, Brandon Lee was on the set of The Crow, his first and ultimately final starring role, filming an action scene. In the middle of a stunt, a gun that was loaded with blank cartridges, suffered a malfunction. the spent blank casing from shot 1 was jammed into the barrel. Upon using the gun again for shot 2 the second blank went off and propelled the cartridge from shot 1 forward, hitting Lee directly. He was rushed to the hospital and died later that day.
His death was caught on camera and allegedly destroyed under the insistence of director Alex Proyas. Some of the cameramen claim otherwise, though, one even claiming he still owns a copy of the footage. Either way, no footage of the death has surfaced.
