On 12 October 1984, between scenes on the set of "Cover Up" (1984), Jon-Erik Hexum jokingly placed a blank-loaded .44 Magnum prop gun to his temple and pulled the trigger. The gun fired, and the wadding from the blank cartridge shattered his skull. Hexum was rushed to the hospital where he was declared brain-dead and on October 18 was taken off life support and his organs were harvested for transplant.
