Welder’s widow sues Col Pics, Sony

Holcombe suit seeks unspecified damages, also names Ingersoll-Rand

HOLLYWOOD — The wife of a welder who died on the set of the upcoming “Spider-Man” movie has sued Columbia Pictures and Sony Pictures Entertainment in a wrongful death action.

Suit, filed Wednesday by Deborah Holcombe in Los Angeles Superior Court, seeks unspecified damages. It also names Ingersoll-Rand, maker of the forklift used on the set.

Tim Holcombe, 45, died March 6. While he was welding a set, a forklift fell onto an aerial construction basket in which he was riding at the former Rockwell Intl. plant in the Los Angeles suburb of Downey.

Columbia parent Sony has appealed California’s proposed fines of nearly $59,000 for nine alleged safety violations on the set.

Reps for Sony and Ingersoll-Rand had no comment about the suit. “Spider-Man” is scheduled to open in May.
