Midnight Rider: Sarah Jones Safety App Expands to Apple Platform

Sarah Jones Midnight Rider Death

A free “Set Safety” app honoring the late Sarah Jones, the camera assistant killed on the “Midnight Rider” set, has been extended to the Apple platform.

The app debuted Oct. 3 for Android users after a campaign from the “Pledge to Sarah” safety awareness group announced. That group raised the funds through an Indiegogo campaign.

The “Set Safety” app includes access to safety hotlines for reporting unsafe working conditions and access to Contract Services Administration Trust Fund safety bulletins. The app also is designed so that photographic evidence of safety and time card violations can be sent anonymously to industry organizations.

The group made the announcement Tuesday on its Facebook page.

Jones’ death on Feb. 20 has sparked heightened awareness about safety issues within the below-the-line community.

A March 9 trial date has been set in Georgia for four defendants facing criminal charges related to the  death of Jones and other injuries on the set. Director Randall Miller, producer Jody Savin, executive producer Jay Sedrish and first assistant director Hillary Schwartz face charges of involuntary manslaughter and criminal trespass. Each has pleaded not guilty.

    I know that people always say they r “NOT GUILTY. “It is just so unkind to the person (s), that r taken from our world, way, way too early in their young lives. Look at the history of those that r gone, for the same “Negligence”, of the ones responsible for this tragedy! They r guilty, until proven innocent, not the other way around.
