The set of Mister Rogers biopic You Are My Friend has been struck with tragedy, after a member of the crew died on Thursday night, after falling from a second story balcony.
Mt. Lebanon Police Department tells ET that, during a break between filming scenes, a 65-year-old sound mixer, whose name has not yet been released, went to smoke a cigarette on the balcony.
The Marielle Heller-directed film - now without a name but previously developed under the title You Are My Friend - was shooting a scene in the Pittsburgh suburb of Mt. Lebanon, just south of the city.
Police say the crew was on a break and Emswiller was taking a break alone on the deck.
The AP additionally noted Hanks, who stars in the project as Fred Rogers, was on site at the time of the incident.
Witnesses nearby said they heard a noise and found him lying on the ground after he had fallen from a balcony, WPXI-TV reported.

The cast also includes Josh Hopkins, Sarah Gadon, Jon Tenney, Mamie Gummer, Scoot McNairy , Carmen Ejogo , and Deborah Ayorinde. HBO is hoping Season 3 will be a return to form after a poorly-received second season in 2015.
Emswiller won an Emmy for Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Limited Series for HBO production of "Bessie".
Emswiller is a veteran of the industry, having worked on major films like The Avengers, Jack Reacher, and Concussion.
Emswiller was rushed to the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center for treatment but succumbed to his injuries. He may have suffered a medical emergency which caused the fall, though the cause of death is still to be determined by the medical examiner's office.
The image was shared on the studio's Twitter account on Thursday and shows Hanks, 62, dressed in a red sweater, beige slacks and blue sneakers sitting on the steps of his trailer.
The film is now slated for release October 18, 2019. In the story, a cynical journalist begrudgingly accepts an assignment to write a profile piece on the beloved icon and finds his perspective on life transformed.
