Those dead were assistant director Krishna, art assistant Chandran and Madhu, a production assistant, Lyca Productions, producer of the movie, said in a statement on Thursday. We just escaped death by a whisker. Four seconds before, the director and cameraman moved away and I was standing nearer along with the heroine. If I had gone nearer eitherway, today someone would be speaking here (in front of the media) instead of me. What I am saying is accidents are like tsunami. It does not know who is rich or who is poor, Kamal Haasan said. Any industry has the duty to take care of its workers, he said and appealed to the film fraternity to take steps to protect the workers. There are accidents waiting to happen and we should ensure they don t happen , he added.  The accident took place at suburban Nazrathpet when the crane employed to erect the sets crashed, police said. The production house of the film Indian 2 has also mourned the untimely demise of the team members.  (With agency inputs)
