A 65-year-old sound mixer is in critical condition at the UPMC Mercy hospital near Mt. Lebanon, Pa. after a fall from a two story building during the filming of Mr. Rogers biopic "You Are My Friend".

Emswiller, who won an Emmy in 2015 for outstanding sound mixing for a limited series or movie for his work on Queen Latifah's "Bessie", has nearly 80 credits to his name.

The victim, who was transported to an area hospital, may have suffered a medical event prior to falling over the brick wall surrounding the balcony, Mt. Lebanon Police Chief Aaron Lauth said.

Police and paramedics were called around 7:30 p.m. after other crew members reportedly heard Emswiller hit the ground.

The Mister Rogers film, previously titled "You Are My Friend", is inspired by the late children's television icon's friendship with journalist Tom Junod, who wrote a 1998 Esquire profile about him.

A nurse who travels with the movie crew ran to assist Emswiller, as did members of the crew, and began life saving measures.

"All of a sudden, all of these lights were just everywhere, and they started inching closer toward us shining into the bar, and I was like".

"We asked, 'What's happening inside?' And they said they're making a Mr. Rogers movie or something".

"There were a bunch of fire trucks like maybe two of three ambulances, it was a large commotion everyone was starring", said Sarah Pfabe.

The first image from the film, which is set to hit theaters October 18, 2019, was released in September, showing Hanks dressed in Rogers' signature cardigan.

According to reports, it is likely he had a heart attack, apart from maintain serious injuries from his fall.

Filming was halted for the evening, according to CBS News. It is still unclear whether it will resume this Friday.
