  • Crew member 'critical' after falling 2 stories on set of Tom Hanks’ 'Mister Rogers' film: reports

Mount Lebanon, Pennsylvania law enforcement officers maintain that Emswiller "may have experienced a medical problem" prior to falling from the balcony.

Emswiller, who won an Emmy in 2015 for outstanding sound mixing for a limited series or movie for his work on Queen Latifah's "Bessie", has nearly 80 credits to his name.

The unidentified 65-year-old crew member was rushed to a Pittsburgh-area hospital, where his condition worsened, Mt. Lebanon police told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

Per a police report obtained by TheWrap, witnesses on the scene stated that the incident took place while Emswiller was taking a smoking break.

The movie production crew was in Mount Lebanon for the second day filming an interior apartment scene.

He also worked on major films including The Avengers and Jack Reacher.

Seedorf gets first win and Salah injured in Egypt victory
Egypt assistant coach Hany Ramzy has provided an update on the injury of the Pharaohs' star Mohamed Salah . Egypt had used all three of its substitutes and played the last moments of the match with 10 men.

The movie stars Tom as Fred Rogers, the host of "Mister Rogers" Neighborhood', the popular educational children's TV series of the 60s and 70s which aired on PBS. No one reported seeing the man fall, but people did hear the victim hit the ground, the chief said.

Police said shooting of the movie, provisionally titled "You Are my Friend", was halted while they investigated the fatal fall. Hanks is playing Rogers in the film.

The image was shared on the studio's Twitter account on Thursday and shows Hanks, 62, dressed in a red sweater, beige slacks and blue sneakers sitting on the steps of his trailer.

It is based on the real-life friendship between Rogers and Tom Junod, a cynical journalist who was sent to interview the TV star only to find the encounter transformed his outlook on life.

Rogers, who died in 2003, was the subject of the documentary "Won't You Be My Neighbor" released earlier this year.
