Set dresser David Ritchie, 56, suffered serious head and shoulder injuries and died instantly. A second man was taken to the hospital and a third managed to escape unharmed.
Police officer Joanne Verbeek confirmed that sand and earth frozen to a wall for exterior design came unstuck as the set was being torn down and crushed Ritchie. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Verbeek said, “It was just an unfortunate, fluke accident.”
