The outlet adds that a power line left the crew member with second and third degree burns on over half of his body, which led to the amputation of his right foot.

According to reports, DiVincenti - who is being represented by attorneys Carisa German-Oden, Joseph Miller and Benjamin Saunders of Mandeville - believes the production team should be held responsible for his injuries, which he is still suffering from a year on.
