Authorities in New Mexico called for a helicopter to be sent “quickly” in the wake of the Alec Baldwin film set shooting, according to the 911 dispatch audio.

Baldwin accidentally fired a prop gun — killing cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, 42, and injuring director Joel Souza, 48 — while filming his upcoming Western film “Rust” at Bonanza Creek Ranch in Sante Fe on Thursday.

“We have two people shot,” a woman can be heard saying in the initial 911 call at about 2 p.m.

After arriving, authorities can be heard asking dispatchers: “Can you go ahead and get a helicopter quickly?”

As first responders were treating Hutchins, dispatchers were told the helicopter hadn’t yet taken off because they were “still trying to stabilize the patient.”

Hutchins was airlifted to the University of New Mexico Hospital in Albuquerque, where she died from her injuries.  

Souza was treated in a Santa Fe hospital and later released.

The film set was sent into lockdown and production was halted immediately after the accidental double shooting.

“Detectives are investigating how and what type of projectile was discharged,” the sheriff’s office said in a statement.

No charges had been filed as of Friday.
