Warner Bros. says a crew member with a 25-year career in television and motion pictures died in an accident Thursday at a special effects facility in Toronto.

A statement from the executive producers of "Titans'' says Warren Appleby died during a special effects test for the show. 

Toronto police have said he was struck by a piece of metal after equipment exploded at the west-end site and that he died en route to hospital.

The Ministry of Labour says they are investigating the incident.
