Dexter Star Suing For Dangerous Prop Mishap

brandon eaton sues prop company for using real defibrillator

Dexter star Brando Eaton is suing a prop company for an incident on set while on the show Miami Medical.

He was playing a character who was to be shocked with a cardiac defibrillator, but it was not a prop - it was the real thing!

Since it was a "real working device," the defibrillator sent real electrical charges through his body when it was applied to his chest during the scene.

Eaton claims he was rushed to the hospital and needed "treatment and counseling for the anxiety, flashbacks and apprehension from this incident" in its aftermath.

The actor believes he could have been killed and hopes the prop company will give him ca$h to make amends.

    what is with these prop companies and these "little" mishaps, lately? didn't someone recently get shot by a gun that was supposed to be firing blanks? anyway- i digress.

    this is no joke. being shocked with a defibrillator when there is nothing wrong with you absolutely can kill you. what idiot thought it would be a good idea to replace the fake defib. with a real one? seriously, people need to get their shit together.

    Heart defibrillators are generally low risk however voltage going straight to the heart has a risk of damaging the heart muscle. He has every right to sue.

    Jon-Erik Hexum is the gorgeous actor who accidentally killed himself when he fired a blank-loaded pistol into his head on the set of the show Cover Up.

    "Dexter Star"? I watch Dexter religiously and I have never seen him on the show…AND CERTAINLY NOT STARING ON IT….

    Oh, he was the Trinity Killer's spoiled-rotten stuck-up gay son that destroyed the Classic Hot-Rod; hardly "STAR" material….

    OMG. Thank God he wasn't killed. A girl died when her friend thought it was off and jokingly used it on her.

    Umm yeah, if you use a working defibrillator on a beating heart, it can EASILY stop it. I'd sue them into the stone age!!!
