    Morrow was beheaded by a helicopter blade - while trying to rescue a child actor

    Nice way to go out.

    A suit was filed - but no blame was attached.

    It wasn't a "nice way to go out". Morrow was killed during a scene with the kids who were working illegally according to child labor laws. Somebody should have gone to jail because of the criminal negligence but Hollywood has lots of money to throw around.

    Wow...i forgot all about this!

    In the early morning hours of July 23, 1982, Morrow and two children, My-Ca Dinh Le (age 7), and Renee Shin-Yi Chen (age 6), died in an accident while filming on location for the Twilight Zone: The Movie in Ventura County, California, between Santa Clarita and Piru. Morrow was playing the role of Bill Connor, a racist who is taken back in time and placed in various situations where he would be a persecuted victim: as a Jewish Holocaust victim, a black man about to be lynched by the Ku Klux Klan, and a Vietnamese man about to be killed by U.S. soldiers. Morrow, Le, and Chen were filming a scene for the Vietnam sequence in which their characters attempt to escape from a pursuing U.S. Army helicopter out of a deserted Vietnamese village. The helicopter was hovering at about 25 feet above them when pyrotechnic explosions damaged it and caused it to crash on top of them, killing all three instantly.[4]

    There was a lot of controversy about this movie...had something to do with the child labor laws and how they weren't supposed to be in the movie, or something like that. Then 2 children died with him....it was pretty sad!

    My Uncle Don looked a lot like Vic Morrow. We just called him Uncle Bud.

    He hated that!

    Morrows family deserved better.
