A stuntman from the well known AMC show “The Walking Dead” has been confirmed dead after he sustained a head injury after an unprecedented accident on set.
The Coweta County Coroner’s Office said John Bernecker died Wednesday evening of “blunt force trauma” after he suffered a 20- foot fall. His death has officially been ruled as an accident.
Prior to Bernecker’s death, AMC expressed their sympathy by stating the network was “keeping John and his family in their thoughts and prayers.”
The AMC series temporarily shut down production following the accident.
Bernecker’s death follows after a voiceover actor from the “Walking Dead” prequel series, “Fear the Walking Dead,” died in a skydiving accident.
