A light operator identified as Jason Miller has been hospitalized after he suffered a severe body injury after receiving a bite from a poisonous spider on a movie set.

He was one of the technicians who continued to work on the film “RUST” after Alec Baldwin accidentally killed Halyna Hutchins.

Jason was seriously injured by a spider bite onset will not need to have his arm amputated.

Miller told TMZ that doctors will be able to save his left arm despite his severe reaction to the bite of a brown recluse spider, a species with a powerful venom, that bit him while he was taking apart the movie set after the fatal shooting.

Reports say he is diabetic, Jason said he underwent invasive surgery in which doctors removed muscle and skin from his left arm, but he is responding well to treatment and surgeries, so amputation is ruled out after initial concerns that he might lose his arm.

And he claimed that the production of “Rust” that should compensate him financially was avoiding him, but now his lawyers say they are working with the film’s insurance company to compensate him for his health problems.

Miller also took the opportunity to thank the expressions of affection and everyone who donated to GoFundMe so that he can pay for medical expenses.

Miller’s attorneys, Justin and Lydia Pizzonia told TMZ that while negotiations are progressing smoothly, they are prepared to file a lawsuit against the insurance company for “Rust” if Jason does not receive adequate compensation.
