Beijing Express 2021, the fatal accident: two candidates stopped the adventure following the advice of doctors

The filming of Beijing Express 2021 was enlivened. In addition to being interrupted for six months because of coronavirus, production had to face a fatal accident. Interviewed by Tele Star, presenter Stéphane Rotenberg returned to the drama.

Originally, Beijing Express was to take place in Uganda, Ethiopia and the United Arab Emirates. But, as the team was in the second country, coronavirus was reaching more and more people in the world, including France. Fearing that everyone is blocked in Africa, production has therefore made the decision to stop the shooting and to get everyone back to France.

But their passage to Turkey was disturbed by a fatal accident. On September 21st on the side of the seaside town of Antalya, Turkey, a 82-year-old driver lost control of his vehicle and hit two cars. In one of them was a team of candidates, the other was that of production.

both participants and their supervisor were injured and the driver behind the accident died. A shock for the Beijing Express team. But we’ll talk about it all the more because on the advice of doctors, the two candidates stopped the adventure.

It was proven that their driver was nothing in the accident,” explained Stéphane Rotenberg. The entire interview is to be found in the TV Star magazine of March 1, 2021.
