Crane Operator Electrocuted To Death On Set Of Elvis Chuk's Movie
29 year old crane operator Moses Okwudili (pictured in black operating the crane) died yesterday evening Monday June 3rd on the set of Elvis Chuks movie, Hustlers, after the crane he was operating made contact with high tension wires. Witnesses said Moses pushed the crane too far up, and was looking at the monitor when the crane made contact with a naked wire. He was electrocuted on the spot. The incident happened a few minutes after these photos were taken.
People around gave him CPR before rushing him to a nearby hospital where he later died. The movie director, Elvis Chuks, was standing right beside him checking out monitors when the sad incident occurred. They were shooting a scene with Nse Ikpe Etim Clifford when Moses was electrocuted.
A distraught Chuks has temporarily suspended the movie production as they mourn Moses' passing. He leaves behind a young child. RIP, Moses.
