Former X Factor winner Shayne Ward nearly killed a midget while making his new video.

The singer was shooting the promo for his new single ‘If That’s OK With You’ with a host of models and zany extras in Mexico when he reportedly made a near fatal error.

Two midgets were involved in a scene where Shayne had to pick one of them up and throw them into a swimming pool. Unfortunately, he threw the wrong one, who was also wearing a face mask and could not breath in the water.

Ward and several members of the crew dived into the water to rescue the unfortunate chap.
