The accident happened on Monday afternoon while on holiday with his family.
eNCA’s Editor Jeremy Maggs paid homage to Said.
“Ben was one of the country’s best television journalists and his loss to the station is immense. Having just re-joined the station he was already making his presence felt across all aspects of the business. We are all in deep shock.”
Said joined eNCA as a producer in 2000 before rising through the ranks to become Senior Reporter and eventually Group News Editor.
He left the news station in 2015 to take up a senior management position at TRT.
eMedia investments extended its sincerest condolences to his wife Nicky and his daughters Lily and Bella.
