Movie editor died after choking on bun

The British production worker, a dialogue editor on 1979 sci-fi classic Alien and sound editor on 1985 adventure movie King Solomon’s Mines, suffered a stroke in February (11) which left him struggling to swallow.

Days later he choked while eating the sweet treat, sparking a fatal heart attack.

A coroner in Oxfordshire, England, ruled Tilling – who also worked as a dubbing editor on cult creepy TV series Hammer House of Horror – died from an “obstruction of the airway, leading to cardiac arrest”.
