On July 23, 1982, a Bell UH-1 Iroquois helicopter crashed at Indian Dunes in Valencia, Santa Clarita, California, during the making of Twilight Zone: The Movie . The crash killed three people on the ground-actor Vic Morrow and two child actors, Myca Dinh Le and Renee Shin-Yi Chen-as well as injuring the six helicopter passengers.

Landis was filming his segment of the film when a helicopter accident occurred on set, claimed the lives of brilliant actor Vic Morrow, father to Jennifer Jason Leigh, and child actors Myca Dinh and Renee Shin-Yi Chen.

In the film Morrow plays a racist anti-Semite who is thrown directly into The Twikight Zone.

He is made to experience life as a Jew in the holocaust, as an African-American being hunted by the Ku Klux Klan and is a Vietnamese soldier in the Vietnam war.

It is during this act of the story that the accident occurred.
