The 1983 movie release of the Twilight Zone had a great tragedy involving two child actors and Actor Vic Morrow. During the shoot while simulating a Vietnam war battle, a helicopter crashed into the three, decapitating Vic Morrow and chopping up the two children.
The making of the movie had consequences which overshadowed the film itself. During the filming of a segment directed by John Landis on July 23, 1982, actor Vic Morrow and child actors Myca Dinh Le (age 7) and Renee Shin-Yi Chen (age 6) died in an accident involving a helicopter being used on the set. Pyrotechnic explosions caused the low-flying helicopter to spin out of control and crash.
