Occupational risk: Film maker dies while filming a Giraffe

A film-maker skull was crushed in an unimaginable way while filming a giant giraffe in Broederstroom South Africa.

According to multiple reports, the 47-year-old Carlos Carvalho was working on ITV popular ‘Wild at Heart series” when the horrific incident happened.

He was airlifted from the scene in Broederstroom, South Africa, to the same hospital where British safari park owner Mike Hodge is recovering from a lion attack in Johannesburg but surgeons were unable to save him.

He started chasing the boom Player who joined our unit,’ he added. ‘The giraffe followed him but we didn’t feel threatened because he just seemed to be inquisitive.

We started shooting close ups of its body and its feet. Then while Carlos was looking through the camera eyepiece Gerald swung his neck and hit him against his head as he was sent flying 6 feet in through the air.
It came out of nowhere and Carlos didn’t even see it coming. He wasn’t aware of the danger.

His body lay lifeless on the ground until the on-set paramedic arrived. 

I could see he was unconscious,’ he said. ‘There was blood coming out of his eyes and ears so I knew he had a severe head trauma. But I never thought he would die.

Out of all the wild animals we have filmed I can’t believe a giraffe killed Carlos. I suppose we get so used to filming animals that we become desensitised in a way” his colleague Drikus Van Der Merwe said.
