Cinematographer Chan Kwok-hung was killed Wednesday after a boat he was on during the filming of Jackie Chan’s “Skiptrace” capsized.

The cinematographer of more than 20 years is understood to have drowned after the boat containing seven other film crew members turned over off Lantau Island in Hong Kong around 3 a.m. local time, Variety reported.

The other members were reportedly able to swim the 30 yards back to shore. It was not immediately clear what caused the boat to capsize. Jackie Chan and co-stars Johnny Knoxville and Fan Bingbing are not believed to have been on board at the time, Variety said.

Police are investigating the incident, while local industry associations are reportedly raising money for Chan’s family.
