Troy extra dies after accident

A man who was working as an extra on the film Troy died yesterday in
hospital from complications which arose after he suffered an accident on
the set at the end of last month.
 
George Camilleri, 39, a keen bodybuilder who won the title of Mr Malta in
1989, broke his leg while filming an action sequence at Ghajn Tuffieha on
May 30, his family said when contacted yesterday.
 
He was operated on the following day but suffered complications over the
weekend and was readmitted to hospital, where he died early yesterday
afternoon.
 
A member of the family said a magisterial inquiry was underway, but a
police spokesman had no information on the subject.
 
Mr Camilleri was married and had three children aged seven, 12 and 14.
 
The family said details of his funeral will be announced later.
