Walt Disney studios said: “Our hearts and thoughts are with his family, friends, and colleagues at this time.”


Spokesman Paul Roeder added in a statement: “Our full support is behind the investigation into the circumstances of this terrible event.”

Police revealed the man had been wearing scuba equipment to carry out maintenance on a deep pool on a ranch near Palmdale, in the desert north of Los Angeles, where the Western is being filmed.

It is thought he was preparing a tank for an underwater scene to be shot at a later date.
