Arrow Media tells TV with Thinus in a statement it's currently investigating "the sequence of events which led to this tragic accident and our thoughts are with the family and friends of Dudley Saunders during this very difficult time".
Dudley Saunders (45) was filming with his camera between train tracks in southern Soweto and wanted to get a speeding metro rail train as the backdrop. The speeding train brushed him as he stood very close next to the train track as the speeding train came past. The train pulled him off balance, dragged him along and he died instantly.
Dudley Saunders' memorial service will be next Tuesday, 7 January, which would have been his birthday.
His death came as a huge shock for South Africa's TV news industry, generating an outpouring of tributes for the man from many of South Africa's top TV names in front of, and behind, the camera who've worked with him over the past two decades.
Dudley Saunders is the 3rd South African cameraman who've also worked for the SABC who tragically died this year.
The Londen-based production company says that Arrow Media was informed on Monday morning "of a fatal accident involving the South African based cameraman, Dudley Saunders, whilst on a shoot which took place near Johannesburg for the Arrow Media production, World's Most Extreme".
Dudley Saunders leaves behind his partner of many years, two children, his parents (his dad who is Cliff Saunders, the famed former SABC political TV reporter and international correspondent), and siblings.
