A stunt person has been reported dead after attempting to film a motorcycle scene on the set of “Deadpool 2.”
According to TMZ, the rider, a female whose name has not been released, went airborne after her bike crashed through the glass of a ground-floor studio. Witnesses claimed she didn’t appear to apply the brakes.
The rider was rushed to a nearby hospital in Vancouver, where the action-packed movie, starring Ryan Reynolds, is taking place.
This isn’t the first accident that has occurred on a film set recently.
Stuntman John Bernecker died in July after falling 20 feet onto a concrete floor while filming a scene for Season 8 of “The Walking Dead.”
