BREAKING: Walking Dead John Bernecker Dies After Falling On Set

Stuntman John Bernecker has died after plummeting from a 25-foot balcony onto the concrete floor while working on the set of The Walking Dead. He was airlifted to Atlanta Medical Center where he was placed on a ventilator.

Sources claimed John suffered swelling to the brain, while a coroner confirmed that he died of blunt force trauma after losing his footing and falling while rehearsing a fight scene, dailymail reports.

Richard Hawk, a coroner for the Coweta County Coroner’s Office, said the cause of his death was blunt force trauma.

TMZ reports that; “The Medical Examiner tells us the 33-year-old died in the hospital Thursday evening. He was surrounded by friends and family, including his girlfriend who is a stuntwoman on the show when a ventilator was turned off.”
“A source tells us earlier the swelling in his brain seemed to go down at one point on Thursday, but then it swelled back up again.”
The accident occurred at Raleigh Studio in Georgia and AMC shut down production shortly after the fall.

John put in nearly 10 years of stunt work in Hollywood and had most recently worked on huge movies like “Black Panther,” “The Fate of the Furious,” and “Logan.”
