“Walking Dead” Stuntman Injured During Show Production Dies Of Massive Head Trauma

Production of the hit AMC show The Walking Dead was shut down after stuntman John Bernecker suffered serious injuries while rehearsing a fight scene.  The scene called for Bernecker to make a routine fall from a balcony, but unfortunately he lost his footing and fell some 30 feet to the concrete floor below.

Unfortunately, the Coweta County Coroner’s Office in Georgia confirmed that Bernecker has died from his injuries, suffering from massive head trauma.

AMC said in a statement, “We are saddened to report that John Bernecker, a talented stuntman for The Walking Dead and numerous other television shows and films, suffered serious injuries from a tragic accident on set.  He was immediately transported to an Atlanta hospital and we have temporarily shut down production.  We are keeping John and his family in our thoughts and prayers.”
