BRUSLY, La. (AP) - About 15 people are recovering after a staircase collapsed during filming of a TV mini-series at the Cinclare Sugar Mill Historic District just north of Brusly.
A spokesman for the West Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office tells The Advocate crews were filming a scene for "Bonnie and Clyde," a mini-series about the notorious bandits, early Saturday when the wooden staircase gave way.
Col. Richie Johnson says about 15 people were hurt. Two were transported by Acadian Ambulance to area hospitals for treatment of minor injuries. Johnson says the rest were treated at the scene.
It's unclear why the staircase gave way. An investigation is underway.
Liza Kelso, interim executive director of the Baton Rouge Film Commission, says production has not been halted and filming will continue Monday.
