LOS ANGELES (AP) - The parents of a camera assistant killed two years ago while shooting a film in Georgia are bringing their message of set safety to Hollywood.

Richard and Elizabeth Jones have been meeting with everyone from film executives to set workers for the past two weeks, sharing memories of their daughter and urging crews to put their own safety first.

Their daughter, Sarah, was killed by a train in February 2014 while filming a biopic of singer Gregg Allman in Jessup, Georgia. The crew was filming without permission from the train company.

The Joneses met with a crew on a shoot near downtown Los Angeles Thursday, with Richard Jones telling them, "Please look out for each other."

Several crew members hugged them and recounted how Sarah Jones' death had impacted them.
