Motorsports cameraman dies after being hit by racing car
The motor sport and media fraternity are in shock following the demise of a cameraman hit by a racing car at Jamhuri Park racetrack during the sixth round of the Kenya National Autocross Championship.
Anthony Ndung’u Macharia was rushed to Karen Hospital by the event ambulance after the afternoon incident and was pronounced dead at the ICU after succumbing to his injuries.
The cameraman -killed in the line of duty- met his demise while trying to retrieve his camera and tripod from an oncoming competition car.
Stewards called off the event moments after the first heat when Robert Gow’s car clipped a bank on a straight during the official heat runs and went off into the path of the cameraman.
