'Walking Dead' halts production after stuntman badly injured on set

'Walking Dead' halts production after stuntman badly injured on set

According to reports, Bernecker and Dwight actor Austin Amelio were filming a scene on a balcony when the accident occurred.

John Bernecker, a stuntman on The Walking Dead set who was rushed to an Atlanta hospital after a stunt on the set went horribly wrong, has died. "He will always be part of the TWD family", the show wrote.

A coroner says a stuntman for "The Walking Dead" has died from injuries suffered in a fall on the Georgia set of the hit television show.

A statement from SAG-AFTRA, a union that represents media workers, on Friday said Bernecker was an "accomplished" stuntman and called his death a "tragic and untimely loss".

He berates members of the public who distrust the media saying: "There are still people out there who believe we're making it up". None of these people made it. "My grandmother used to say, 'Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive'".

"Although devastated by their loss, John's loved ones have ensured his legacy will live on, not only through the personal and professional contributions he made during his life, but also by their generous decision to allow John to save lives as an organ donor", the statement read. The 33 year-old man was immediately helicoptered to the hospital in Atlanta.

A tragedy happened this week on the filming of the series the Walking Dead.

On Wednesday, July 12, AMC halted production on the new season after Bernecker was seriously injured on set.

The Federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating the incident as well.
