Halyna Hutchins yelled 'she couldn't feel her legs' in haunting cries after being shot by Alec Baldwin on set

HALYNA Hutchins yelled “she couldn’t feel her legs” after being shot by Alec Baldwin on the set of a movie.

The 42-year-old cinematographer was killed on the set of Rust after the actor was reportedly handed a gun loaded with a live round.

Baldwin, 62, was told the weapon was “cold" and wasn't aware it was loaded when he fired it, killing Halyna and wounding writer-director Joel Souza.

Cops in New Mexico have now released harrowing details surrounding the death of the mother of one.

Cameraman Russel Reid and Souza, who was shot in the shoulder, have described to investigators Halyna's haunting final moments.

In the run up to her being shot, Baldwin was practicing a 'cross-draw' move in a mock church at the Bonanza Creek Ranch when he pointed his weapon at the camera.

Souza said suddenly there was a "loud pop" and he realized both him and Halyna were wounded.

In Santa Fe detective Joel Cano’s police report he said Reid told cops he saw Halyna clutching her stomach and realised they were both bleeding.

“Reid said after the firearm discharged, he remembered Joel having blood on his person, and Halyna speaking and saying she couldn’t feel her legs,” he wrote.

Halyna was then airlifted to the hospital but could not be saved.

Reid revealed the gun went off after Baldwin took it out of its holster and the shooting was NOT caught on film.

“He said Alec was trying to explain how he was going to draw out the firearm and where his arm would be at when the firearm was pulled from the holster,” wrote the cop.

“Reid was not sure why the firearm was discharged and just remembered the loud bang from the firearm.”

In his report, Detective Cano also recounted Souza said “he was looking over the shoulder of Halyna when he heard what sounded like a whip and then a loud pop”.

“Joel then vaguely remembers Halyna complaining about her stomach and grabbing her midsection," he wrote.


“Joel also said Halyna began to stumble backwards and she was assisted to the ground.

“Joel explained that he was bleeding from his shoulder and he could see blood on Halyna.”

Reid also revealed more detail about the run up the fateful shooting.

He said while preparing the the scene "there was a shadow coming from the outside light and they had to move the camera at a different angle from Alec".

“He said Alec was trying to explain how he was going to draw out the firearm and where his arm would be at when the firearm was pulled from the holster,” according to the warrant.

The statements also reveal more about the chaos on set that day, after unionized workers had walked off set, leaving the production behind schedule.

They had complained about long hours, shoddy conditions and allegedly another safety incident days earlier involving “two misfires” of a prop weapon. 


“During the morning hours, the day started off late due to a camera crew that had quit and they had to find another camera crew to help film the movie,” Souza told police.

“[Souza] said once they hired another camera crew to assist, the day was taking longer than usual because they only had one camera to do the filming.”

It comes as another Rust crew member recounted holding cinematographer Halyna in his arms "while she was dying" and blamed the armorer on set for her shooting death.

It has now emerged that the vintage weapon was used by crew during their down time, reports TMZ.

Multiple sources connected to the movie told the website the weapon was used for what amounted to target practice using real bullets.
