However one user, rightly pointed out: "Maybe it didn't happen whilst filming was taking place.

"We haven't got all the facts yet so please stop assuming you know exactly what happened."

Another said: "Sometimes safety precautions still fail and you have to be prepared for that and deal with the possible consequences."

A third added: "Stop trying to blame someone. It's a horrible accident."
