It’s a sad day on the set of the upcoming Mister Rogers movie.

Mt. Lebanon Chief of Police Aaron Lauth told PEOPLE hours before Emswiller died that the production member was “taking a break” when he collapsed and fell from the balcony of the building.

“Basically, he appears to have suffered from a medical emergency while on the balcony,” Lauth said at the time. “He was taking a break and smoking a cigarette when he fell.”
