‘Rust’ lamp operator Jason Miller hospitalized, threatened with amputation after being bitten by the brown recluse spider


A Rust crew member was hospitalized and could lose his arm after being bitten by a spider while the set of the ill-fated western film closed. Jason Miller, a lamp operator and pipe boom, was reportedly bitten by a brown recluse spider on the New Mexico film set that was indefinitely closed on October 21 following a gun accident that resulted in the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins. Miller was hospitalized days after the bite for “arm necrosis and sepsis,” according to a GoFundMe set up on his behalf. The fundraiser, which raised more than $ 10,000 on Tuesday, said Miller “got through multiple surgeries every day while doctors do their best to stop the infection and try to save his arm from amputation “.

TMZ, which shared graphic photos of the open wound, reported that Miller’s family plans to sue for workers’ compensation. When Sky News asked for comment earlier this week, a producer spokesman for Rust said, “We don’t comment on the private matters of individual members of the cast and crew.”
