A local hospital has asked for more than $ 46,000 to settle the bill of actor Brandon Lee, who died of a gunshot wound.
Meanwhile, D.A. Jerry Spivey said he plans to make an announcement, probably within the next 10 days, about whether to pursue charges of negligent homicide against the production company.
Linda Lee Cadwell, Lee’s mother, filed suit against Edward Pressman Film Corp. and several crew members Aug. 6, claiming their negligence caused her son’s death while filming a scene in “The Crow.”
John Wessell, a lawyer who does collection work for New Hanover Regional Medical Center, has attached a claim for $ 46,404.97 to Cadwell’s suit.
Spivey said he is waiting for a report from the North Carolina Labor Dept.’s Occupational Safety & Health Administration. The OSHA report is expected to detail possible violations of workplace safety standards.
