The accident occurred on the River Niger while the team was returning from the shooting location of the film “The Other Side of Life.”

In a series of emotional videos posted to her Instagram page on Saturday, Luke disclosed that she narrowly missed being on the ill-fated boat due to a last-minute task.

This twist of fate saved her from being part of the tragic accident that unfolded shortly thereafter.
