In an interview with George Stephanopolous, Stephanopolous requested “You haven’t said much in public since that tragic accident? Why speak out now? I think the big question and the one you must have asked yourself 1000 times, how could this happen? You’ve described it as a one 2 trillion shot, and the gun was in your hand. How do you come to terms with that? It wasn’t in the script for the trigger pull.”
“Well, the trigger wasn’t pulled,” Baldwin mentioned, “I didn’t pull the trigger.”
“So you never pulled the trigger?” Stephanopolous requested.
“No, no,” Baldwin mentioned. “I would never point a gun and pull that trigger at them. Never.”
“What did you think? How did a real bullet get on the set?” Stephanopolous requested.
“I have no idea. Someone put a live bullet in a gun. A bullet that wasn’t even supposed to be on the property,” Baldwin mentioned.
Hutchins leaves behind a husband and a younger son.
