Production stops on ‘Power’ after crew member dies on set


A crew member for the popular US TV drama Power died after a tragic accident while filming on location in the early hours of Monday morning (10 December).

Pedro Jimenez, a production assistant on the show, died after he was struck by an SUV at 4:30 in the morning (Eastern Standard Time). Jimenez was laying down traffic cones at the time of the incident. He was 63 years old.

Production on the show, which is executive produced by rapper and actor 50 Cent, has been temporarily shut down — to give cast and crew time to deal with the shock.
