Video footage was being filmed on train tracks without any permission from the right authority; a train came and crashed into the production team and the equipment.
As the crew where filming they seen a train come round on the bridge they were filming on. When the train driver blew his whistle they had less than one minute to move the props and themselves off the tracks. A man fell on the tracks when he was trying to move a bed they were using as a prop.
As the crew were leaving the tracks a camera assistant was struck causing a fatal accident at work. She was only 27. The rest of the crew where air lifted to hospital.
